AAFP Credit System News

Stay up to date on the ever-changing environment of CME!

Learn how the AAFP Credit System is involved in making the jobs of CME providers easier so they can continue providing quality education for family physicians and other members of the health care team.


On January 22, 2019, The Accreditation Council for CME (ACCME) released a call for feedback on the Standards for Commercial Support (the Standards). The Standards are designed to ensure independence in CME activities and have been adopted by the AAFP Credit System as part of its eligibility requirements.

This letter to the ACCME(3 page PDF) includes recommendations from the AAFP on proposed changes to the Standards. These recommendations are based on feedback from chapters, CME provider organizations, and members, as well as staff experience reviewing and auditing thousands of AAFP accredited educational sessions against the standards.  

We will continue to keep CME providers informed of progress and next steps.
