ACCME Highlights (03/26/20)
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) has released suggestions and strategies for continuing medical education (CME) providers to ensure that doctors receive current and relevant COVID-19 training that also helps fulfill maintenance of certification (MOC) requirements. The council recommends that those providing CME for MOC activities addressing coronavirus should register them in the Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS), which will guarantee their appearance in a keyword search on ACCME's CME Finder physician search tool. When transitioning to virtual CME delivery, ACCME says providers can retain MOC credit by moving evaluations online and changing the activity format in PARS if switching from an in-person course to a virtual live course or an Internet enduring material. Virtualized in-person regularly scheduled series activities do not require a change in activity format, however.
