Available Now: Register Your CME Activities for American Board of Surgery Continuous Certification

ACCME Highlights (03/02/21)

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Board of Surgery (ABS) are inviting all accredited CME providers in the ACCME System to register 2021 CME activities that meet ABS Continuous Certification Program mandates, and to submit learner completion data in the Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS). ABS Continuous Certification activities and learner completions can be posted from March 2021 onward, and providers should not disclose learner completions taking place before March 1, 2021. ABS will accept activities registered as Accredited CME and Self-Assessment, as well as any CME activity relevant to surgical practice. To grant Self-Assessment credit, providers also must notify learners about participation in the evaluation component, and supply them with feedback about whether they met the requirements to earn Continuous Certification credit. Learner completion data should be disclosed in PARS within 30 days of completion, after which it will go directly from the ACCME to the ABS. PARS-registered activities for ABS Continuous Certification will be posted in the CME Finder. "By working together, the ACCME and the ABS empower our educators to offer ABS diplomates more flexibility in choosing high-quality, practice-relevant learning that advances their ability to deliver the highest quality care," said ACCME President and CEO Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc.
