Target Audience This activity is designed for all physicians, but specifically targeted to those 65 years of age and older. Statement of Need As physicians practice longer, there is a growing concern about physician competency, and the potential impacts on clinical performance and quality of care. Physicians are aware that there is great variability in human faculties as we age, and agree that decisions about competency should be based on functional age, rather than chronologic age. This session will put an emphasis on objective evaluation for determining what the functional age is for a physician.

Accreditation Statement The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education credit for physicians.
Credit Designation Statement The American Medical Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
