How do I know if I should apply to the ACCME or my state medical society to become an accredited provider?

The following institutions are eligible to seek accreditation directly from the ACCME: 

  • State medical societies;
  • Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME)-accredited schools of medicine;
  • National physician membership organizations;
  • National medical specialty societies; and
  • other organizations whose programs of CME serve physician learners, 30% or more of whom are from beyond the home or contiguous state(s) of the organization.

Organizations whose programs of CME primarily serve physician learners, 70% or more of whom are from the home or contiguous state(s) of the organization, are eligible to seek accreditation from an ACCME Recognized State Medical Society.
