Sign In / Assessment Policies: 

In accordance with the requirements of the Council on Podiatric Medicine, The Foundation is required
to monitor session attendance for verification of CECH.

There will be two options for earning CECH, attending pre-scheduled lectures available only in real-time or viewing recordings of lectures at any time during the duration of the Virtual Conference. While attending real-time pre-scheduled lecture, attendees must perform an attendance verification to earn CECH. If an attendee chooses to view a recording of a lecture instead, they will be required to complete and pass a post-assessment to receive CECH credit.

To ensure that the Foundation continues to provide you with a meaningful educational program, all attendees, regardless of viewing format, will be required to complete an electronic meeting evaluation in order to receive a CECH certificate and verification form. This form will be distributed via email following the conference.

If you missed performing an attendance verification due to unforeseen circumstances and attended the session warranting CECH, please fill out an NY21 Missed Scan Form and submit to ftdoc2@aol.com no later than April 23, 2020.
