In November, the AAFP sent letters to members who are due for re-election on December 31, 2021, who still have not reported sufficient CME. The letters reminded members that they need to earn and report their CME by December 31 to maintain AAFP membership. You must have earned your hours by December 31, 2021, but have until March 2, 2022 to report. Don’t put it off though!
As previously announced, the AAFP Board of Directors approved the elimination of the live credit requirement. Additionally, the eligible CME credits for the learning acquired through preparing for the one-day ABFM/AOA certification/recertification exam have increased from 25 to 30 and will now qualify as Prescribed credits rather than Elective. The AAFP online system has been updated to reflect these changes.
Please note: Credit for AAFP self-study CME like AFP, FPM, and FP Essentials™ is awarded on the date of the successful completion of an assessment or quiz. The CME for these activities must be earned by December 31 for the credits to apply to the current cycle.
Thank you for your continued membership and don’t hesitate to contact AAFP at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 274-2237. AAFP staff are happy to help you report your CME and answer any questions you may have.
**AAFP.org will be down for scheduled maintenance from 5 p.m. Dec. 10 – 9 p.m. Dec. 12.**
