To supplement AASM educational course offerings, the program supports specialized conferences addressing unique topics that have not been covered in other venues. These programs may involve speakers and attendees outside of the AASM membership.
The AASM does not require continuing medical education (CME) to be offered as part of the CGSP. However, if the applicant offers CME as part of the proposed conference, then it must conform to all CME guidelines with respect to conflict of interest (COI) disclosure and industry support.
An applicant may receive CGSP funding no more than one time per year. Members of the AASM board of directors and their families are ineligible to apply for or receive funding.
