AAFP Credit System FAQ
Questions After Completing an Application
At times, the AAFP Credit System needs additional information on specific CME applications in order to better-understand content or ensure that the content in question aligns with the AAFP Credit System’s Eligibility Requirements. These requests may focus on learning objectives, slide decks (a copy of the presentation that is planned for a live event), a session overview description, a connection to patient care, etc.
Please know these requests are part of our standard process and do not indicate that content is not eligible for credit. As always, we strongly encourage you to use the eligibility requirements as a guide when creating CME. Additionally, it is a good resource if you’re unsure if your activity is eligible for CME credit through the AAFP Credit System.
After an activity receives official AAFP credit approval, "Save the Date" announcements and advertisements may indicate that the activity was approved for AAFP credit without using the full, official AAFP credit statement. Advertising options are listed below.
