Each year, accredited providers offer more than 130,000 continuing medical education activities in communities across the country drawing more than 24 million health care practitioner participants.
With the intent of ensuring Equivalency of CME providers accredited within the ACCME® system, some state medical societies, or their subsidiaries, have agreed to conduct programs of accreditation of CME providers according to the ACCME’s 2008 Markers of EquivalencySM. In turn, the ACCME has agreed to provide a review of these Accreditor’s practices to ensure compliance with these ACCME requirements. For each, the ACCME has examined the accreditor’s processes, data interpretations and accreditation outcomes. The ACCME has published a list of organizations it has ‘Recognized’ as accrediting CME providers in compliance with these ACCME Markers of Equivalency. Through this ACCME process of Equivalency, both the state-accredited and the ACCME-accredited providers in the ACCME system listed on the ACCME web site are meeting the ACCME’s requirements and national standards, as published on www.accme.org.
There are nearly 2,000 CME providers within the ACCME system. Find the one nearest you.
Details about specific provider's CME activities are from the 2012 reporting year.
The ACCME makes information regarding accredited providers available on its Web site as a service for the CME community and other stakeholders. The ACCME expects that this information will be used only for noncommercial purposes in support of the CME community.
