Educational Resources Review: ACCME Academy Update

In June 2021, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) expanded access to their online ACCME Academy so that their courses would be available to everyone, whether an accredited provider or not. They continue to add courses and expand existing curriculum, so the educational resources have grown since that expansion.

When I first wrote about this expanded access, I highlighted Education for Equity and Access, and I still recommend it. A recent addition to this curriculum is “Accessibility in CE.” I found this new course offers a lot of useful tips and guidance on making sure that both in-person and online education is made accessible to all learners.

The ACCME has also added a course focused on the Standards for Integrity and Independence. While these Standards might no longer be considered “new,” they are still a vital part of ensuring that the education we provide is as free from bias as we can make it.

If your organization has access or the budget to purchase courses, it is worth looking at the catalog. You may find, as I do, that there are useful resources to be had.
