The American Association for Cancer Research has been reviewed by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®) and awarded Accreditation with Commendation for six years as a provider of continuing medical education (CME) for physicians (through March 2024). Accreditation in the ACCME System seeks to assure the medical community and the public that American Association for Cancer Research delivers education that is relevant to clinicians’ needs, evidence-based, evaluated for its effectiveness, and independent of commercial influence.
The ACCME System employs a rigorous process for evaluating institutions’ CME programs according to standards that reflect the values of the educator community and aim to accelerate learning, inspire change, and champion improvement in health care. Through participation in accredited CME, clinicians and teams drive improvement in their practice and optimize the care, health, and wellness of their patients.
All CME activities are conducted under the ACCME’s Standards for Integrity and Independence. In accordance with ACCME guidelines, AACR policy requires that anyone in a position to control content of an activity must disclose all relevant financial relationships with ineligible companies.
