Continuing Medical Education
The Committee on Continuing Medical Education coordinates, monitors, and evaluates the Continuing Medical Education (CME) program and its individual activities to ensure quality and consistency in the content development and design process as well as to provide oversight for the accreditation of the AAP CME program. The primary role of the committee is to ensure that the AAP CME program remains on the leading edge of pediatric continuing medical education. Thus, a critical function of the committee is to recommend new directions and/or initiatives for the AAP CME program in consideration of sound educational practice based on the principles of adult learning theory and the most current and evidence-based CME research.
