Fee Schedule for CME Accreditation for Colorado CME Providers


CME providers may register CME activities for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points in PARS. The American Board of Internal Medicine, American Board of Anesthesiology and the American Board of Pediatrics have collaborated with the CME system to enable physicians to earn MOC credit for activities they participate in every day, such as Regularly Scheduled Series and Grand Rounds. Each board has requirements – see the information links below.
