The CME activity application is the mechanism used to apply for CME credit and is required for all activities. UC San Diego CME utilizes a web-based system for the management of accreditation applications and associated data. The platform enables a streamlined process for application submission, committee review, reporting, and follow-up data submission.

The application is due 60 days prior to the start of the activity and is available online.

Description: submit online application

Application Submission
The following information is required along with the application:

  • Program agenda with times and titles of talks
  • Faculty list
  • Activity Budget
  • Conflict of Interest Disclosures for the course director(s) and planning staff/committee. All persons involved in the planning of a CME activity (including course directors, planners, speakers, staff, and committee members)must provide conflict of interest disclosure information. Disclosures are due from course directors, planners and committee members along with the application. Disclosures from other speakers and staff participating in the activity may be submitted at a later date (but no later than 4 weeks prior to the activity).

HighMarks allows for completion and updating of disclosure information online at any time. For administrator access, please contact our office at

Application Review and Approval
The application review process may take 10-30 days to complete, depending on the completeness of the application submitted. Note that applications are not forwarded to the CME advisory committee for review until all application materials are provided, including the disclosures for course director(s) and planning committee members/staff. If this is a repeat activity, all follow-up documentation from the previous year must be on file with our office before we can approve your application for the following year.

Approvals are sent via email to the course director and coordinator listed on the accreditation application along with information about processes and documentation requirements. Please make sure that you use the templates and tools provided to you to ensure compliance with accreditation requirements.

All approvals are tentative until all the required documentation is received throughout the planning cycle and post-activity. Failure to submit the required documentation may result in withdrawal of credit designation for the activity.
