​Continuing Medical Education

The AACR's Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program brings the latest cancer research from "bench to bedside and back." Our CME Program consists of educational interventions designed to encourage the analysis and discussion of the latest findings in all areas of basic, translational, and clinical cancer research, not only among researchers, but also by engaging clinicians in this scientific discourse. 

The AACR's goal is to create a learning platform designed to improve knowledge and advance the ability of physicians to apply critical aspects of basic cancer research to the clinical practice of oncology to aid in the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer.

The AACR Office of CME received full CME Accreditation through March 2018 from the ACCME, allowing the AACR as an organization to designate educational activities and to provide CME credits to our physician scientists and clinicians. All CME activities are conducted under the ACCME's Standards of Commercial Support. ACCME guidelines require that anyone in a position to control content of an activity must disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. Read more

The AACR offers AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for reviewing manuscripts for all AACR Journals. Only reviews received on time and judged as satisfactory by the editor’s team responsible for the particular manuscript will be eligible for CME credit. Read more.
