The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) currently holds joint accreditation status with the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), and the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). In November 2022, this six-year joint accreditation period will end, and ASCO will resume its status as an accredited continuing medical education provider with the ACCME. This change reflects the evolving demographics of learners in ASCO’s educational activities as well as streamline the process for granting continuing education credits.
CE Program General Information
ASCO has been an accredited provider of continuing medical education since 1977. The Society designed the comprehensive continuing education (CE) program to help oncology providers acquire and maintain the knowledge and skillset needed to improve the care of patients with cancer and survivors.
