The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®) is pleased to release the ACCME Data Report: Growth and Evolution in Continuing Medical Education — 2016. The report includes data from a community of more than 1,800 accredited continuing medical education (CME) providers that offer physicians and healthcare teams an array of resources to promote quality, safety, and the evolution of healthcare.
Key Takeaways – A Vibrant, Growing Community
The geographic distribution and diversity of CME providers means that clinicians and teams have access to education where they live and work that addresses local, national, and international healthcare priorities.
“Every day, across the country, clinicians can choose from more than 3,000 hours of accredited CME. Accredited CME is a tremendous resource — offering clinicians, educators, and health leaders the power and capacity to address many of the challenges we face in our changing healthcare environment,” said Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc, President and CEO, ACCME.

About the Data Report
Each year, accredited organizations within the ACCME System submit data describing their individual CME activities and overall CME programs. The ACCME aggregates this information to give a view of the year and analyzes current and previous years’ data to identify long-range trends. Since 1999, the ACCME has produced annual data reports as a service to educators, learners, and other healthcare stakeholders.
