The mission/charge of the Committee on CME (COCME) is to:
- Encourage innovation in AAP continuing medical education (CME)/continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
- Promote active learning by providing educational resources and guidance to CME/CPD planners.
- Support the implementation of the AAP CME/CPD program mission statement: Acknowledging that bias and systemic racism negatively impact our patients, the AAP strives to provide learning that addresses bias, stereotypes, and structural determinants of health. Learning activities are designed to improve competence and professional performance for optimal patient outcomes and reinforce best practices of pediatricians and pediatric health care professionals.
For additional information about the COCME, educational resources to assist in planning CME/CPD activities, and the Best Practices Guide to Learning, please visit the COCME website.
The AAP Joint Providership Program has been designed in collaboration with Chapter leaders to foster excellence in continuing medical education throughout the Academy. For detailed information regarding the joint providership process or to obtain application materials, please contact us.
