Meets the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) Part IV Simulation Requirement
The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) offers intensive one day workshops in Anesthesia Crisis Resource Management (ACRM) for all anesthesiologists that will meet the MOCA® Part IV simulation requirement.
CMS Anesthesia Crisis Resource Management workshops are designed for those anesthesiologists seeking to practice their skills in managing critical events. The overall focus of these workshops is on learning the type of teamwork and generic skills needed when managing any kind of infrequent but critical event in anesthesia, and opportunities will be made available to learn skills in managing certain specific events. During the workshops, participants requiring MOCA® certification will each have a turn as the primary anesthesiologist caring for the patient.
The Center for Medical Simulation is an endorsed program in the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Simulation Education Network and has ensured that this workshop complies with the American Board of Anesthesiologists’ Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia MOCA® Part IV simulation requirements. MOCA® is a registered certification mark of the American Board of Anesthesiology, Inc. (ABA).
These workshops have been approved for continuing education credits by the CRICO/Risk Management foundation of the Harvard Medical Institutions. CRICO/RMF is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. CRICO/RMF designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This activity is designed to be suitable for 7.5 hours of Risk Management Study in Massachusetts.

You are not enrolled, and do not have a reserved seat, until we have received your full tuition.
Course seats are filled in the order we receive tuition payments. Since our courses fill quickly it is important for you to send in your tuition immediately to secure a seat. Once your tuition payment is received, you will be taken off the wait list and enrolled in your desired course/workshop provided a seat is still available. If all seats in your preferred course/workshop are filled by the time we receive your tuition payment, you will be informed that it is full and given the option to remain on the wait list in the event that a seat later becomes available, switch to another course at a later date with available seats or receive a refund.
