The Committee on Continuing Medical Education (COCME) coordinates, monitors, and evaluates the AAP continuing medical education (CME)/continuing professional development (CPD) program and its individual CME activities to ensure quality and consistency in the content development, design, and delivery of educational activities and to provide oversight for the accreditation of the AAP CME/CPD program. A primary role of the COCME is to ensure that the AAP CME/CPD program remains on the leading edge of pediatric continuing medical education. Thus, a critical function of the COCME is to recommend new directions and initiatives for the AAP CME/CPD program in consideration of sound educational practices based on the principles of adult learning theory and the most current and evidence-based CME research.
