The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recently unveiled a partnership to broaden opportunities for Royal College Fellows to earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program Section 3 credits via participation in accredited activities that satisfy MOC requirements. The effort aims to increase the variety and number of activities meeting the requirements for Royal College MOC Program Section 3, which involves self-assessment programs. Royal College Fellows can report participation in activities registered for CME in Support of MOC, including the expectation that learners participate in the self-assessment and receive feedback. Activities available on or after Nov. 1, 2019, through June 30, 2022, will qualify. "We celebrate our long-standing relationship with the Royal College because it builds collaboration across borders and helps us to achieve our shared goal to support physicians in delivering optimal healthcare for all," said ACCME President Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc.
