ABSTRACT
The article presents a sampling of public responses to Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) proposals. About 80 percent of the respondents said that support-free continuing medical education (CME) designation is not necessary because the current ACCME requirements already ensure that accredited CME is fair and balanced. Seventy percent of the public disagreed to the proposal of creating a third party independent of ACCME to collect commercial support funds and disseminated grants to accredited providers.
