ACE/MOC | Heart Rhythm Society


Accredited Continuing Education

The Heart Rhythm Society provides a comprehensive array of educational options to best meet your learning needs. Many of HRS' educational activities provide Accredited Continuing Education (ACE, formerly known as CME).

HRS is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®) and is awarded Accreditation as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians.

Accreditation in the ACCME System seeks to assure the medical community and the public that HRS delivers education that is relevant to clinicians' needs, evidence-based, evaluated for its effectiveness, and independent of commercial influence.

HRS supports its members commitment to education through a variety of activities that offer accredited continuing education (ACE) and maintenance of certification (MOC) points.

To learn more about our activities, visit Online Learning and HRS Meetings to find accredited continuing education (ACE) activities.

HRS ACE Mission Statement

The Heart Rhythm Society’s accredited continuing education program uses adult learning principles to (1) assess practice gaps and learner needs for heart rhythm care; (2) design, develop and deliver high-quality, unbiased, evidence-based, and timely activities in a variety of learner-centric formats; and (3) evaluate, refine and improve education for clinicians who provide care to patients with heart rhythm disorders. The expected outcome of these activities is an improvement in clinician competence.

New Term Introduction

At the end of 2020, the ACCME had introduced new terms to some of the common names and acronyms. The following terms have changed.

  • The term accredited continuing education (ACE) will replace continuing medical education (CME). This change is to explicitly differentiate between accredited and nonaccredited education providers and education.
  • Ineligible company replaces the term commercial interest. The new term is intended to clarify that eligibility for accreditation is not based on whether an organization is for-profit or nonprofit but is based on its primary mission and function.

These terms will begin to take effect on January 1, 2022.

Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

Committed to finding viable solutions that work for our member community, HRS wants its members to get back to taking care of their patients rather than trying to navigate the complexities of the MOC process or spending countless hours away from their practices.
