Continuing Medical Education, Funding of AAFP Educational Activities

The AAFP affirms that it must maintain responsibility for control over the selection of content, faculty, education methods and materials in all of its continuing medical education activities, to ensure objectivity, balance, and scientific rigor and independence. "Responsibility" and "control" are to be interpreted as follows: Program development, including agenda preparation and speaker selection, will be conducted by the AAFP.

The AAFP appreciates the financial support given to its continuing medical education programs by proprietary entities. Any funds for this purpose must be in the form of an educational grant made payable to the AAFP as the accredited sponsor for the support programming. (1991) (2008)
