AAEM Activity Application Instructions

Recommended conference applications should be submitted no less than three months in advance of the activity and should adhere to the Recommended Conference and Course Guidelines.

  1. Recommended activities are planned and developed completely by a separate educational partner who also provides the CME credit, but the educational content is in line with AAEM's CME mission.

  2. Your activity should be in the earliest stages of development at the time of application. You will be asked to describe the overall purpose, target audience and methods of instruction of your activity on this application.

  3. Once the application is received, it is sent to the ACCME Subcommittee for approval for domestic meetings and the International Conference Committee for International meetings. Please allow for up to four weeks for review and official written notification from AAEM stating whether your application for the recommended conference has been accepted. Please note that AAEM will not forward requests for recommended conferences if they fall within one month prior to or following AAEM conferences or meetings.

  4. The Recommended Conference application fee is equal to one full course registration for the applicant's conference. Please send the application fee along with your initial application.
