All accredited CME providers are expected to enter activity data in PARS to fulfill ACCME’s data reporting requirements. Each year, we aggregate this information in an annual data report as a service to our accredited education community and to identify long-range trends that shape the evolution of our system. Previous data reports are available here.

Steps to Complete Your Annual Reporting

To fulfill your annual reporting requirements, there are five steps to complete by Monday, April 1, 2024 at 11:59 pm Central Time: 

  1. Accept the terms of the ACCME annual agreement, located in PARS under Provider Agreement(s). Each year, all accredited providers are asked to accept the annual agreement regarding data submission and compliance with ACCME policies and procedures.
  2. Enter all activities that started in 2023, and close all activities that also ended in 2023.
  3. If you provide enduring material activities, update the total cumulative learner counts as of December 31, 2023. Enduring materials should remain open until the end date, which may be up to three years from the start date.
  4. Complete and submit your Program Summary, located on the dashboard in PARS.
  5. Review and update your contact information. You can do this by clicking “Back to Accreditation Management” in the top right section of the PARS dashboard. 

Please note: Providers accredited by a state medical society may be required to complete their annual reporting requirements earlier and should check with their Recognized Accreditor for more information.
