What is Accredited CME

Accredited CME is based on a learner-centered, continuous improvement model

Accredited CME is based on a learner-centered, continuous improvement model. As an accredited body, our Association provides facilitate self-directed, practice-based education that supports physicians’ commitment to lifelong learning. More specifically, our accredited CME is tailored to the physician leaders looking for the business acumen required to drive improved patient outcomes and experience, and changes throughout health care.

How CME is Recorded

Physician Participation is recorded and verified by different methods depending on the course delivery platform, including:

  • For live Institute, course activities require a pre-registration, usually electronic, in concert with a post-registration confirmation unique to the individual. Following completion of the course, attendees of our live educational events must access their secure dashboard and claim CME.
  • For live webinars, registration occurs either via an on-line registration and payment, or a manual registration via phone or email, followed by AAPL staff entering/registering the attendee into our database.
  • For onsite programs, no pre-registration is required in our system. The partnering organization forwards a verified sign-in sheet of attendees, and the attendees are entered into our database and registered for their activity.
  • For self-study or online-only activities, upon online registration and payment, a participant receives access to an online activity classroom. The first time the classroom is accessed, there is a set of informational tabs they are required to view containing course and accreditation information. Once they complete the ‘click through’ of the tabs, their activity will open and they can begin the course. The website that houses the classroom activities documents a ‘time stamp’ so that we can monitor when the course was started, and it is considered attended and completed when the evaluation is completed, post-course assessment is completed and passed at 75 percent pass rate, and CME is claimed.

How is CME Claimed

After being registered in our database:

  • Physicians have access to the course and classroom materials
  • After completion of the activity, they access the post-evaluation and assessment via their online dashboard.
  • For all formats of activities, CME cannot be claimed until the post-course evaluation is completed and assessment is passed. Only then will the participant be able to claim CME credit, and the credit claimed appear on the electronically generated AAPL CME transcript. 
Records are kept for a minimum of six years though electronic attendance records are maintained indefinitely.
