On November 1, 2007, the reaccreditation progress report was submitted to the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), which determines the accreditation status and term. The decision was received by the ACCME in March 2008, announcing the status of Accreditation with Commendation, and awarding AACAP with a six-year term.
AACAP received exemplary compliance in the following Essential Areas and Elements:
- Planning Process
- Needs Assessment
- Evaluation of Overall CME Program
- Business and Management Policies and Procedures of CME Program
- Policies for Disclosure and Standards for Commercial Support
This decision confirms the strength of AACAP’s continuing medical education program. It is through the work of our outstanding Program Committee and Continuing Medical Education Committee that we were able to achieve this status.
This is a milestone for AACAP’s CME program. Only 6-8% of accredited providers receive this status.
