The AAFP Credit System was the first national CME accreditor for physicians in the US and today, is the only accreditor focused solely on the needs of family physicians. The AAFP Credit System reviews CME activity credit applications, on a per activity basis, and awards either AAFP Prescribed or Elective credit to activities that comply with our eligibility requirements under the direction of the Commission on Continuing Professional Development (COCPD). On average, the AAFP Credit System reviews and awards credit for over 1,000 CME provider customers, whose activities and sessions total more than 16,000 per year.
The mission of the AAFP Credit System is to facilitate members’ access to vetted, relevant, and quality CME that improves the practice of family medicine, health care delivery, and the health of individuals and populations.

"Friendliness of staff. We work with multiple boards/accrediting bodies. As new applicants this past year, your staff was super helpful and encouraging as well as responsive. We don't find that with all other organizations. Thank you."
