columnist Steve Passin outlines what you need to know about the new AMA Learning from Teaching credits now available for academic CME providers.
Learning from Teaching and PARS
Learning from Teaching activities are reportable in the’s Program and Activity Reporting System, also known as PARS. While the ACCME allows providers to group Learning from Teaching activities into one activity for reporting purposes, this is only applicable when all learners are claiming the same number of credits (i.e., their total claimed credits add up to two, for example). In most cases, since this is an individual learning experience, the number of credits claimed by the learners will vary considerably, and therefore—practically speaking—each Learning from Teaching activity may be a separate reportable activity in PARS.
