All information and materials will be submitted in the ACCME’s Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) Accreditation Management System. You will also use PARS to schedule your accreditation interview. The forms you are required to complete will be made available to you in PARS in a sequential process, starting with the Confirmation of Intent form.
Providers are required to submit a self-study report for reaccreditation. CMA uses the self-study report, along with performance in practice structed abstracts of CMA selected activities, and other data including annual reports and other interval monitoring data submitted by the provider throughout the accreditation term, to evaluate the providers ability to fulfil its educational mission effectively and comply with accreditation requirements.
The self-study report is the providers opportunity to tell its story through assessment of its commitment and role in providing CME, analyze its current practices, identify areas to improve, direction for the future, and effectively present these results to CMA.
CMA selects activities that must be submitted as evidence of Performance-in-Practice. Up to eight activities will be selected, representing each type of activity and spanning the entire term of accreditation. Providers are accountable for demonstrating performance-in-practice for all the activities selected.
