  • ACCP is accredited by the ACCME and the ACPE. In order to comply with ACCME and ACPE regulations, industry employees are not permitted to serve as course chairs for any courses applicable to patient care that offer CME or CPE credit.  
  • Courses must be based on identified gaps/needs in professional practice (for example, the course is based on new regulations/standards or guidelines, national health data or reports or issues/concerns described in the professional literature).
  • Faculty should be chosen to ensure that the course is fair and balanced and represents the various professional areas with an interest in the topic. 
  • The proposed activity should promote improvements in healthcare and not proprietary interests of a commercial interest.
  • Per ACCP's Annual Meeting Proposal Guidelines and Budget Requirements, only Non-members are reimbursed for travel expenses. Course chairs should keep the budget in mind when identifying Faculty participants.
