How does the ACCME define hours of instruction?

Last Revised: 
November 11, 2011

Hours of instruction equals the total hours of educational instruction provided.  For example, if a one-day course lasts eight (8) hours (not including breaks or meals), then total hours of instruction reported for that course is 8. 

See the ACCME FAQs about regularly scheduled series, manuscript review and learning from teaching for additional specific examples regarding calculating hours of instruction for these types of activities.
