The Self-Assessment Examination in Child Neurology is an on-line tool developed by
members of the Child Neurology Society to help board certified child neurologists meet one of four Maintenance of
Certification (MOC) requirements established by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). Each exam covers a broad range of child neurology related content in 100 multiple-choice questions, each with detailed feedback/discussion components. Two new CME accredited exams (8 credits each) have been posted on the CNS MOC site, identified as Child Neurology Self Assessment Exams #3 and #4; a 5th will be added in late December 2014. NOTE: The 3-year-accreditation for Child Neurology SAEs #1 and #2 has expired; those taking #1 and #2 may still access their exam to review in preparation for the ABPN recertification exam.
Self Assessment Exam fee: $100 for CNS Members and $250 for non-CNS members, payable by VISA or MasterCard

Coming in December 2014: The second Performance in Practice clinical modules (Tourette Syndrome)
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the
Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Minnesota Medical
Association and the Child Neurology Society. The Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) is accredited by the
Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Minnesota Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 8 AMA
PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their
participation in the activity.
It is the policy of the Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and
scientific rigor in its CME activities. To comply with the Standards for Commercial Support of the Accreditation
Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the MMA requires members of the planning committee and faculty
to disclose the existence of any financial interest or other relationship he/she and his/her spouse or partner
has with companies whose health care products or services are discussed in an educational presentation. The
requirement applies to relationships that are in place at the time of the release of the enduring material or in
the 12 months preceding the release date.
The following financial relationships were disclosed; however, no conflict of interest was found and/or was resolved prior to the activity:
The remaining members of the faculty and planning committee for this conference have indicated that they have no relevant financial relationships to disclose related to the content of the CME activity.
Faculty members have declared that they will uphold the MMA’s standards regarding CME activities and that any clinical recommendations are based on the best available evidence or are consistent with generally accepted medical practice. Please indicate in the comments section of the evaluation form whether you detect any instances of bias toward products manufactured by commercial interests.
