We received approval for continuing education credits from the American Association of Family Physicians (AAFP) for distance learning for our 2021 conferences. AAFP is a national accrediting body that approves continuing medical education (CME) activities that are relevant to the scope of family medicine for medical doctors, osteopathic physicians, naturopathic physicians, nurses, and more.
AAFP Prescribed Credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award.
AAFP Prescribed Credit is accepted as nursing continuing education (CNE), plus continuing education for naturopathic physicians, pharmacists and other health professionals whose state boards accept AAFP credits. Additionally, AAFP has a healthcare organization agreement with the following organizations, who all accept AAFP’s Prescribed credit:
- American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA)
- National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA)
- American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)
- American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board (AANPCB)
- American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA)
- American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)
- American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM)
- American Board of Preventative Medicine (ABPM)
- American Board of Urology (ABU)
More detailed information on state regulations will be published here soon.
