At ACCME, we know that CME can be much more than lectures, and we are inspired each time we hear about the many innovative ways our accredited providers are approaching clinician and team learning.

We've asked the CME community to submit photos of “CME in Action” to help us showcase real-world CME. Here are some of the photos we received. We’ll also continue to share some of these images on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #CMEinAction, and we invite you to join us by posting images using that hashtag, as well. By doing so, we can demonstrate to our stakeholders the diversity, flexibility, and quality of CME.

If you’d like to contribute, please email Tamar Hosansky, Vice President, Communications at with your photos, organization name, and a brief description of the CME activity.
