Regularly Scheduled Series
A CME activity is identified as a regularly scheduled series (RSS) when it is planned to have 1) a series with multiple sessions that 2) occur on an ongoing basis (offered weekly, monthly, or quarterly) and 3) are primarily planned by and presented to the accredited organization’s professional staff.
Examples: grand rounds, tumor boards, M&M conferences
The required forms and documentation listed below are based on the assumption that your RSS is funded strictly with department funds.
If you will be receiving any type of external support (e.g. an educational grant from a commercial interest) please contact the CME office, as additional information/documentation will be required.
