    New Credit Application Now Available

    CME providers have been asking for a streamlined credit application, a more easily navigated dashboard, and other system enhancements through surveys and focus groups. The AAFP Credit System took that feedback to heart and has created a new and improved credit application. The new credit application features:

    • A simple pathway, an advanced pathway, and an ALSO/BLSO pathway. (Gone are the days of sorting through six plus activity and sub-activity types to try to figure out which application to complete.)
    • The CME Provider Dashboard has a similar layout but has been revamped to include a highly requested search box that will more easily allow providers to locate their applications.
    • The Activity Summary page has been upgraded as well and now features an estimated review by date, allows providers to more easily locate invoices, and edit certain fields, such as session location and marketing information, at any time.

    COVID-19 Resources for CME Providers

    We're Here to Help

    The AAFP Credit System is committed to supporting CME providers through the COVID-19 crisis.  

    Activities Impacted by COVID-19:
    If you’ve already submitted your credit application, we are offering the following options:

    1. Activities in a pending review status: The activity can be canceled and a full refund issued.  

    2. Activities in an approved status:
      - If your activity is being rescheduled, we can adjust the dates within the credit application.
      - If your activity has been postponed and the reschedule date is unknown, we can change the status to canceled and re-activate the application when new dates are selected. 

    If you are converting your activity from Live to Enduring, we can convert your application to an Enduring Material without any additional fees.

    Reminder: Live Online is Still Considered Live 
    Live online activities are considered live and are still eligible for CME credit under either the “In-Person, Live (could include online)” or “Online Only, Live” session formats. This includes any live online activities that meet our eligibility requirements regardless of the technology used (Zoom, Webex, Google Hangouts, etc.).
