The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) CME Program was conceived in 1991 by the AACE Steering Committee, who identified the opportunity to enhance available educational programs in order to specifically meet the needs of practicing clinical endocrinologists. As an organization of physician-only members (MD/DO), the AACE CME Program was created to target practicing clinical endocrinologists with an overarching goal of orchestrating a variety of techniques and discussions of issues pertinent to clinical practice.
AACE is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and was initially awarded accreditation on March 18, 1994. The AACE CME Program is currently governed by a CME Accreditation Committee, appointed annually by the AACE President with the approval of the AACE Board of Directors. AACE is dedicated to ensuring that all policies, procedures and mechanisms are in place to remain in compliance with the ACCME and American Medical Association (AMA) accreditation requirements and standards.
The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has been resurveyed by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and awarded Accreditation with Commendation for six years as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians.
ACCME accreditation seeks to assure the medical community and the public that The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists provides physicians with relevant, effective, practice-based continuing medical education that that supports US health care quality improvement.
