Proposals will be due by Thursday, November 8, 2018.

Continuing medical education from the AAFP is developed to fill gaps in professional practice. These gaps are identified through needs assessments, which are a fundamental part of CME activity planning. The CME needs assessment process critically evaluates learners’ educational needs by identifying gaps in their knowledge, competence, and/or performance. Data from a variety of sources is analyzed to ensure that AAFP CME Credit System Guidelines are met.

Based on identified needs, educational learning objectives are developed for content that will address gaps in knowledge, competence, and/or performance. Outcome measures are selected to evaluate physician improvement following the CME intervention, and appropriate feedback is collected. Learners should be able to see improvement and identify additional educational opportunities that will facilitate improved performance and close remaining gaps. In addition, outcome measures and learner feedback are reviewed during the planning phase for future CME activities. This ensures that CME from the AAFP continues to meet learners’ needs effectively.


A proposal application is deemed complete and eligible for consideration when it includes evidence-based content, family physician input, submit/update Conflict of Interest online, and evaluation scores from prior national presentations.
