    What CME Providers Say About Us


    We have been using AAFP for years! Our Family Practice physicians prefer AAFP over AMA certification.

    “The customer service and responsiveness of this organization is fantastic. As a new CME provider that was a breath of fresh air and encourages use to do more.”

    "The AAFP credit system is one of the easiest I have ever worked with and I have to give a HUGE kudos to the customer service/support team. I have had to call twice and not only were both individuals I spoke with incredibly kind and supportive they also helped me in the quickest manner. I am very impressed with AAFP and I hope I never have to work with another system."

    “I always appreciate how quickly someone responds to my questions.”

    “The new application takes a lot less time and is easier to navigate.”
