The following ACCME definitions are provided to assist you in selecting an activity type.
A Course is a live CME activity where the learner participates in person. A course is planned as an individual event. Examples: annual meeting, conference, seminar.
An Internet Live Activity is an online course available at a certain time on a certain date and is only available in real-time, just as if it were a course held in an auditorium. Once the event has taken place, learners may no longer participate in that activity. Example: live webcast.
A Regularly Scheduled Series is a course that is planned as a series with multiple, ongoing sessions, e.g., offered weekly, monthly, or quarterly; and is primarily planned by and presented to the accredited organization’s professional staff. Examples: grand rounds, tumor boards, and morbidity and mortality conferences.
An Enduring Material is CME activities that are printed, recorded, or accessible online and do not have a specific time or location designated for participation. Rather, the participant determines where and when to complete the activity. Examples: online interactive educational module, recorded presentation, podcast.
A Performance Improvement CME is an activity based on a learner’s participation in a project established and/or guided by a CME provider. A physician identifies an educational need through a measure of his/her performance in practice, engages in educational experiences to meet the need, integrates the education into patient care, and then re-evaluates his/her performance.
