Accredit Your Program or Event
The CAR is an accrediting educational provider of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, enabling us to accredit radiology programs that ensure high quality adult learning via accredited Section 1 Group Learning activities and Section 3 Self-Assessment Programs (SAP) and Simulation-based activities.
The CAR abides by the Canadian Medical Association guidelines on physician interaction with the pharmaceutical industry and other commercial organizations.
As of January 1, 2018 the Royal College National Standard came into effect. The National Standard is applicable to all accredited group learning activities, self-assessment programs, and simulation-based activities. Please ensure you are using the most current Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Application Form.
The primary focus of all educational activities must be learner-focused and centred.
In order for an activity to be accredited in the Royal College MOC Program, it must be developed or co-developed with a physician organization, planned to meet the following accreditation activity standards, and reviewed by a Royal College accredited CPD provider, such as the CAR. In the case of co-developed programs, the physician organization assumes full responsibility for the program and must be prospectively involved in its planning.
The Royal College defines a physician organization as a "not-for-profit group of health professionals with a formal governance structure, accountable to and serving, among others, its specialist physician members through continuing professional development, provision of health care and/or research. Examples include, but not limited to, faculties of medicine, hospital departments or divisions, medical societies, medical associations, medical academies, physician research organizations, health authorities not linked to government agencies." This is to ensure that the CPD/CME is being developed “by the profession, for the profession.”
