    Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

    Date of Original Release: TBD
    Date Credits Expire: TBD
    Estimated Time to Complete: TBD

    CME credit is awarded upon successful completion of a course evaluation and post-test.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

    • Apply current/recommended pulmonary guidelines in clinical practice
    • Perform differential diagnosis of complex clinical presentations related to pulmonary disorders
    • Identify/apply current therapeutic options for specific pulmonary disorders
    • Evaluate and interpret up-to-date literature relevant to clinical practice in pulmonary medicine
    • Illustrate knowledge of pathophysiology as it applies to management of pulmonary disorders
