FAQs - CME/CPD Award


  • What is the AAP CME/CPD Award?

    The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes the efforts of its members to keep current through continuing medical education (CME) and continuing professional development (CPD) activities. If you regularly participate in AAP provided or approved continuing medical education activities, you may qualify to receive the prestigious AAP CME/CPD Award. All AAP provided/approved CME activities automatically provide AAP credit. To qualify for the AAP CME/CPD award, you must meet the following requirements:

    • You must be an active Fellow or Candidate Member of the Academy
    • You must have earned at least 150 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ over a 3-year period through AAP provided or approved continuing medical education activities
  • How do I apply to receive the AAP CME/CPD Award?

    There are no applications to complete, no forms to fill out. The AAP CME/CPD Award is mailed automatically at the end of every fall to those who qualify. Members can only receive the award once every 3 years. The Academy automatically tracks your attendance at AAP sponsored and jointly provided activities. If you participate in an AAP approved CME activity, please mail or fax a copy of your certificate of participation to:
