National Faculty Education Initiative Created


The National Faculty Education Initiative (NFEI) jointly sponsored by the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education and the Society for Academic CME (SACME), was launched last week at the National Task Force meeting. This new program is being presented in collaboration with the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) and endorsed by the Association for Hospital Medical Education (AHME). The CME community has voiced enthusiasm about the availability of this educational program for CME faculty and look forward to encouraging their participation in this initiative.

The National Faculty Education Initiative (NFEI) provides online training on the differences between Certified CME and Promotional Activities, as well as a searchable database of medical education faculty who have completed the program.

The program, comprised of 5 modules (including pre and post-test modules, takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Participants will be asked to register prior to taking the FREE course and thereby qualify for the national database that will verify their successful completion of the course. Alliance and SACME members will have free access to the course and as a member, will benefit from the national faculty database as a resource for future educational planning.

Please see the attached press release that describes the National Faculty Education Initiative. Please encourage your faculty to participate in this valuable and unique effort to help our faculty understand the important differences between certified CME and promotional activities.
