• Application Process Overview

    Step 1: Review AAFP's Eligibility Requirements.

    CME providers may apply for AAFP credit for CME activities that are relevant to family medicine and meet the AAFP Credit System's eligibility requirements. It may be helpful to reference our decision tree when trying to determine whether a topic is eligible for AAFP CME credit.

    Step 2: Create an Account

    To create a CME provider account:

    • Click the “Request an Account” button.
    • If you are logged into your individual AAFP account, you will be taken directly to the “Request a CME Provider Account" webpage.
    • If you are not logged into your individual account:

    You will automatically be re-directed to the AAFP’s individual account creation page and you’ll be prompted to log in to your individual account first.

    If you do not have an individual AAFP account login, you will need to create an account. It’s required that CME providers have an individual AAFP account created prior to setting up an organizational CME provider account.

    • Once you’ve created an individual account, or are logged in, then you will automatically be redirected to the “Request a CME Provider Account” webpage.
    • Once on this webpage, select the “Click to Begin New Submission” link to begin a request for the creation of a CME provider account.
    • Answer the questions related to the organization.
    • Click “Save and Finalize.”
    • Upon completing this form, an email is automatically sent to Credit System staff who will review the submission and follow-up with next steps.
