IMPORTANT - ACCME Compliance for Moderators and Speakers

Employees of commercial interests* are not permitted to participate as faculty (moderator or speaker) in Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities unless it can be demonstrated that the activity content:

  • Is not about or related to the business lines or products of their employer.
  • Is limited to basic science research (e.g., pre-clinical research, drug discovery) or the processes/methodologies of research, themselves unrelated to a specific disease or compound/drug.
  • Is not related to clinical applications of the research/discovery or clinical recommendations concerning the business lines or products of their employer.
*Per the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), a commercial interest is “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients”. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests - unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.

Employees of diagnostic laboratories (that do not sell proprietary products) are eligible to submit proposals and serve as speaker/moderators subject to review by the Annual Meeting Organizing Committee (AMOC) and AACC CME's Subcommittee.

Opportunities for employees of commercial interests to speak at the Annual Scientific Meeting are limited. All decisions regarding CME credit will be determined by AACC’s subcommittee.

Please complete all sections of the proposal submission. The AMOC reserves the option to accept or reject any proposal as well as suggest changes in content, presenters, or format. Incomplete proposals, and proposals without Moderator or Speaker COI disclosures, will face delays in processing or may be rejected without review.

2021 AACC and COVID-19

We recognize that there is uncertainty about what 2021 will bring due to COID-19. At this time, both virtual and in-person speaker options are being considered. Visit the Call for Proposals site for more information.
