Planning a CME Activity

SCVMC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

ACCME defines a Regularly Scheduled Series (RSS) as a course that is planned with multiple, ongoing sessions, e.g., offered weekly, monthly, or quarterly; and are primarily planned by and presented to professional staff. RSS examples include grand rounds, tumor boards, and morbidity and mortality conferences.  SCVMC, as an accredited CME provider is in compliance with the ACCME accreditation criteria for RSS, live or other educational activities.

The following is a collection of important resources to assist course planners with establishing a Regularly Scheduled Series or Live Educational Activity with the Continuing Medical Education Program at SCVMC.
