Tax & Estate Planning Implications of COVID-19
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education requires that CME providers document that CME activities increase physician competence or performance or improve patient outcomes. In order to assess whether the recent COVID-19 educational program increased participants' competence in the areas addressed in the Program, AAMS is conducting a post-activity assessment of the Program.
You are asked to complete below quiz on the content of the Educational Expert Series Webinars on Various Aspects of COVID-19.
