- The accreditation requirements are a road map for producing effective education that supports health care professionals' commitment to lifelong learning and practice improvement.
- The Standards for Commercial Support require CME providers to design activities that are independent, free from commercial bias, and based on valid content. The ACCME's objective is to support the free flow of scientific exchange while safeguarding accredited CME from commercial influence.

Educational Needs Assessment Survey
The CME office would appreciate your participation in an educational needs assessment survey so that we may continue to plan valuable learning experiences designed for you.
Educational activities that serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. CME represents 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.
Grievances will be handled on an individual basis and can be submitted in writing to the CME Director for review. All grievances will receive a written response within 30 days of receipt. If the CME Director cannot resolve the issue, the grievance will be referred to the CME Advisory Committee. If no resolution is made by the CME Advisory Committee, the grievance is referred to the Provost. Further appeals shall be addressed to the Council on Osteopathic Continuing Medical Education of the AOA at 142 E. Ontario St., Chicago, IL 60611-2864.
