There are two steps involved in applying for accreditation for your educational activities: Completion of the CME Activity Form and the CME Application.
Step 1: CME Activity Form
Complete this via the CME Platform before the planning of your educational activity begins.
The CME Activity Form requests basic information about the educational activity for which you will be seeking CME credit, including the tentative start date, activity type, name, and so on.
- The navigation menu on the left side of the page is dynamic, highlighting the section you are currently on of the CME Activity Form. Clicking on the other section headings will navigate you to the corresponding sections on the CME Activity Form webpage.
- On the navigation menu, selecting “Share Application” will allow you to share the in-progress CME Activity Form with another individual, by adding their email address. The individual will receive an email notifying them that the CME Activity Form has been shared, with instructions on how to access it. Please note that the sharing feature is only available prior to submission of the CME Activity Form.
- Selecting “Save as Draft” on the navigation menu allows you to save all the information on the page and return to edit it at a later time without losing your progress on the CME Activity Form. Please note that saving the draft does not submit the information to the CPDA Section for review (this is only done when the “Submit CME Activity” button at the bottom of the page is selected).
- Clicking on “Tutorial Video” will open a new window that directs you to the page on YouTube where instructional videos related to each step of the CME Process are available. These provide step-by-step instructions for each requirement, including the CME Activity Form.
