To grow and evolve, we need to study, report, and share our experiences. Toward that end, we’ve created opportunities for research that will advance continuing education (CE) for healthcare professionals that drives improvements in patient care. We’ve identified Advocating for CME Scholarship as one of six goals in our 2018-2021 strategic plan and included it as a component of our Criteria for Accreditation with Commendation.

Request for Proposal: Best Practices in Educational Design

We’re requesting proposals to create a comprehensive review that details best practices in educational design and provides implementation recommendations and tactics for effective educational strategies in CE for healthcare professionals. Proposals are due by June 11, 2021Download the RFP here.

ACCME Data Available for Research

In response to requests from the CE community, we’re offering the opportunity to access anonymized ACCME annual report data to support research that assesses the effectiveness of accredited CE, identifies best practices, and is in service to the CE community.
