|Continuing Medical Education Program|
The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) has been accredited to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits since 1975.
ACPM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). ACCME defines CME content as educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. The content of CME is 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.
Providers are not eligible for ACCME accreditation or reaccreditation if they present activities promoting recommendations, treatment or manners of practicing medicine, which not within the definition of CME--or present training that is known to have risks or dangers outweighing the benefits, and are known to be ineffective in the treatment of patients.
An organization whose program of CME is devoted to advocacy of unscientific modalities of diagnosis or therapy is not eligible to apply for ACCME accreditation.
