Continuing Medical Education Mission Statement

Purpose:
The American College of Forensic Examiners International (ACFEI) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor Continuing Medical Education for physicians. Recognizing that practicing physicians are committed to the lifelong pursuit of learning, ACFEI’s mission is to build upon that educational continuum by providing quality post-graduate, needs-based educational activities. ACFEI strives to support professional development and provide scientific and evidence-based educational opportunities that will contribute to quality healthcare, impacting the ability of physicians to apply current knowledge and skills in their practice.

Content Areas:
A wide range of educational activities are designed to address the needs and interests of our participants. Content areas are based on identified professional practice gaps in physician competence or performance. CME Activity topics include, but are not limited to, Forensics, Pathology, Community Health, Emergency Medicine, Infectious Disease, Pharmacology, Psychiatry, Human Behavior, and Integrative/Holistic Medical approaches to patient care.

Target Audience:
The primary target audience of our CME program includes physicians from multiple specialties worldwide. Our secondary audience also includes other healthcare professionals, such as registered nurses, nutritionists, chiropractors, psychologists and other mental health professionals. 

Types of Activities:
Activities are planned based on adult learning principles, and the use of active-learning techniques is encouraged when appropriate. The Continuing Medical Education activities work to meet the needs of physicians through directly and jointly sponsored activities, including:

  • »  Annual live conferences featuring live courses, presentations, and lectures
  • »  Structured self-study courses
  • »  Journal-based CME
  • »  Enduring materials, and
  • »  Webinars


Expected Results of the Program:
Through our varied activities, participants are exposed to a range of information from basic/refresher science concepts to the latest therapies, skills, and technological advances in the healthcare field. Qualitative and quantitative measures are used to assess changes in the competence or performance of our participants.  Measures may include, but are not limited to, evaluations, pre and post activity surveys/tests, and informal feedback.
