ABTS and ACCME Collaboration on CME Reporting in PARS
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the ABTS are please to announce its collaboration to streamline physicians CME reporting requirements for Continuing Certification. Starting in November 2023, all accredited CME providers in the ACCME system are welcome to register CME activities that meet ABTS Continuing Certification requirements and to submit learner completion data in the Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS).  Physicians can now browse activities registered for ABTS Continuing Certification credit in the CME Passport, an online CME search tool. The ABTS joins nine other ABMS member boards who have transition to PARS for Continuing Certification.  This collaboration should minimize the amount of time Diplomates spend on CME record-keeping for Continuing Certification.

CME Finder
Diplomates can now search for thoracic surgery specific CMEs on the ACCME at:  findit.cmepassport.org/ABTS.
