The Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians requires that CME programs comply with the AACME Standard of Commercial Support.
Faculty members are required to disclose significant financial interest or other relationship with the manufacturer(s) of any commercial product(s) discussed in an educational session. MassAFP will also have signed agreements between commercial supporters and MassAFP to document the terms, conditions and purposes of educational grants to support programming.
CME programs produced by proprietary entities such as pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, etc. including third party agents or health care communications companies representing proprietary entities will not be accepted by the MassAFP. Commercial companies may, however, provide funding to a MassAFP CME program in the form of an educational grant to support the program.
