American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Creative CME Activity Formats

When planning your next CME educational activity, please consider expanding offerings to creative formats such as social media learning (i.e. Twitter clubs). These accredited activities can be a supplement to traditional learning formats (i.e. “booster” sessions between live meetings) or stand-alone educational opportunities. For these activities, please select the “Other” format when applying for CME credit through the ACS CME Platform.
