History of the AACE CME Program
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) essential elements and standards.
