A note about CME for Canadian residents: There are two national CME accrediting bodies within Canada. Both have bilateral “substantial equivalence” agreement with ACCME. The following frequently asked question is posted on the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada’s website:
Question: “I participated in a group learning activity in Canada approved for AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Are these credits approved for MOC Section 1?” Answer: “Group learning activities held in Canada but developed by Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME)-accredited physician organizations (university, academy, specialty society, hospital department etc.) can be recorded as accredited activities under Section 1 of the MOC Program.”
