What is continuing medical education (CME)?

According to the definition of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), Continuing Medical Education (CME) comprises of the educational activities that serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. CME represents that body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.

How can I find my state’s CME requirements?

Visit the appropriate licensing agency website to view the state-specific requirements for that board.

Who accredits CME providers?

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®) leverages the power of education to drive quality in the medical profession and improve care for patients. 

The ACCME accredits organizations that provide continuing medical education for physicians. The ACCME does not accredit individual educational activities. ACCME accreditation is a voluntary system, based on professional self-regulation and peer review.
