TPS Annual Meeting CME Proposals

The deadline to submit a proposal for the 2022 TPS Annual Meeting was December 5, 2021.  We are no longer accepting proposal submissions. The CME Committee will meet in late January to determine which proposals will be accepted for inclusion in the 2022 TPS Annual Meeting.

CME Submission Instruction Sheet
Please review the important instructions and information sheet to ensure your application is complete.

Topics of Interest for Submission/Needs Assessment
We welcome submissions on any topic relevant to the practice of pediatrics; however, this year we also asked our TPS Committees to identify 3 high priority topics that fall under their committee area. Please review those priorities here. In addition, the Needs Assessment Report reflects priority interests of the membership. Please reference either or both of these resources when composing the summary of supportive literature section of your proposal. If your submission topic addresses a high-priority topic, it will be given additional consideration during the scoring process as referenced in the scoring rubric.

How to submit your proposal
Proposals for the 2022 TPS Annual Meeting are submitted electronically using the online proposal submission form.

You should prepare the following information and save a copy of your content before preparing and submitting this online proposal:
Topic/Title for Presentation
Needs Assessment/Summary of Supportive Literature (1400 character limit with spaces)
References for Summary of Supportive Literature
Proposed Speakers (Name, contact address, cell and work phones)

Additional Information:
Each proposal goes through the same process after it is submitted. It is first evaluated to make sure that it qualifies to confer CME credit on an audience of TPS members. Elements considered are relevance, innovation, teaching methods, objectives, and clarity of proposal/evidence cited (TPS CME Proposal Scoring Rubric). All proposals that qualify are then reviewed by the TPS Committee on Medical Education (CoME) at the end of January. 

The number and types of proposals that are accepted depend on the schedule and venue of that year’s Annual Meeting. After the CoME meeting, you will be notified that your submission has been accepted or rejected. In some cases, two strong proposals are submitted on a similar topic; each sponsor will then be asked to combine their topic with the other. At other times, a strong proposal is submitted on a topic for which there is a shorter time slot than that requested, and the sponsor will be asked to offer a proposal for the shorter time slot.

You will not receive a confirmation email from us until after the deadline on December 5, 2021; however, when you submit, you should see a thank you screen confirming your submission.
