How is an "other" activity defined?

The “other” activity format is used for blended, new, or unique approaches that do not fall into one of the established activity types. Providers must identify these activities as “other” in the AMA credit designation statement and include a brief description of the learning format in PARS, in the credit designation statement, and in documentation given to learners (certificates, transcripts, etc.). The inclusion of the “other” activity format allows educators to deploy new technologies such as simulation, adaptive e-learning, virtual reality, gamification, and social media into their medical education approaches.
