About Us

History and Background

The American Academy of CME, Inc. (Academy), headquartered in Jackson, New Jersey, was founded in 2001.

The Academy is an independent, non-profit, medical education foundation. Both on our own, and in collaboration with accredited and non-accredited medical education companies, associations, foundations, and other organizations, the Academy provides certified continuing education to physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, dietitians, social workers/case managers, transplant coordinators, and other healthcare professionals.

The Academy and the organizations with whom we partner have extensive experience in the development and execution of educational curricula across multiple live, print, and web formats. Our team includes both clinical specialists and professionals qualified in the practice of adult education, including development of gap analyses and instructional design, meeting planning and execution, content development, and outcomes measurement.

 Philosophy on Collaborations

The Academy is committed to upholding the highest standards of excellence in continuing education (CE) for healthcare professionals. The Academy ensures that all CE initiatives we certify are of the highest quality and are balanced, independent, objective, and scientifically rigorous.

The Academy accepts requests to partner with other organizations—including medical education companies, professional healthcare associations, governmental agencies, foundations, and international organizations. We take a collaborative approach to program planning, implementation and evaluation with the goal of forming a truly successful partnership with our education partners.

Requests to joint sponsor/co-provide CE activities with the Academy must be submitted in writing to the Academy. A letter of request should at a minimum include the following information:

  • Tentative title/date/location of activity (we cannot certify activities that have already been developed or which have already occurred

  • Delivery Format

  • Targeted Audience

  • Preliminary Faculty (if known)

  • Number of expected credits/contact hours

  • Contact information for person having primary responsibility for development of activity at the potential joint sponsor/co-provider organization

Additionally, the Academy requires the potential education partner to complete and submit Academy Policy 2.1 - Potential Educational Partner Attestation Form in order to document the organization’s corporate structure, mission, organizational chart (incorporating the staff’s reporting structure), and relationships with any parent/sister organizations. The purpose of this document is to establish that the potential partner is not a commercial interest (a joint sponsor/co-provider organization may not be a commercial interest). A commercial interest is defined as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.”
