For CME Providers

Thank you for your interest in learning more about CME accreditation and how you can become an accredited provider.

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) recognizes the Illinois State Medical Society (ISMS) as the authorized body for conducting a voluntary accreditation program for institutions and organizations providing intrastate continuing medical education (CME) in the state of Illinois, or in a region including states contiguous to Illinois. This means ISMS is able to accredit other organizations who would like to develop and provide their own CME activities. ISMS currently accredits 22 organizations as providers of continuing medical education for physicians.

By offering intrastate accreditation, ISMS seeks to assure both physicians and the public that any educational activities provided by accredited providers meet the high standards of educational design as promulgated by ISMS through Accreditation Criteria and Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education. In addition, it is only accredited providers that can award AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Accreditation is granted on the basis of the provider's demonstrated ability to plan and implement CME activities in accordance with accreditation requirements.
