Application Submission: The accreditation application is the mechanism used to apply for CME credit and is required for all RSS. UC San Diego CME is currently in the process of updating the RSS web-based system for the management of accreditation applications and associated data. The platform will enable a streamlined process for application submission, committee review, and reporting/follow-up data submission. During the interim, please apply utilizing the temporary application intake form linked below.

Applications for RSS are due every two years and submitted online. The application renewal submission deadline is June 1 each year. If you are planning a new RSS, please contact our office before submitting an application.

Contact RSS Administrator: 

The following information is required along with the application:

  • Tentative schedule
  • Tentative faculty list. If not applicable, attach list of department/division staff invited to participate on a regular basis
  • All persons involved in the planning and presentation of the RSS (including course directors, planners/coordinators, speakers, committee members, residents, and staff) must provide conflict of interest disclosure information. Disclosures are due from course directors, planners and planning committee members along with the RSS application. Disclosures from speakers and other persons participating in the RSS may be collected at a later date (but at least 5 days prior to the start of the activity).

UC San Diego CME’s web-based disclosure database allows for completion and updating of disclosure information online at any time and we encourage you to use it for your RSS. Current RSS are pre-populated into the database and you may enter disclosure information at any time. For administrator access, please contact our office.

Application Review and Approval: Renewal RSS applications are reviewed during the month of June and approvals are sent by the end of July. If your application is incomplete and requires edits/further documentation you will hear from us by end of June. Note that the documentation for the first reporting cycle (for sessions held between July 1 - December 31) must have been received by our office before we can review your application for the next two-year cycle.

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.
