Why would I pursue a Certificate of Educational Achievement?

The Certificate of Educational Achievement allows you to be recognized for your commitment to the field of transplantation. It is a way to document your experience and knowledge as well as meet the CMS requirements for continued education and training. Please note that the ATP Certificate of Educational Achievement is not currently eligible for CME credit.
