AMBOSS is currently applying for accreditation as a continuing medical education (CME) provider from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
AMBOSS aims to answer clinical questions relating to the diagnosis, treatment, management, and prevention of a wide variety of medical conditions, by providing physicians with current, evidence-based, peer-reviewed information that is immediately relevant to their practice.
- Target audience: Currently practicing physicians.
- Funding source: None
AMBOSS has processes in place to ensure that all CME content it provides is independent and free of bias from any commercial interests. To that end, it requires that all individuals who contribute to or influence CME content (including article authors and editors, as well as Content Leads and planning committee members), as well as their spouses or partners, disclose information annually about any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests within the past twelve months. Individuals who decline to provide this information are not permitted to be involved in any aspect of clinical content development. The Content Lead is responsible for ensuring that any conflicts of interest are identified, reviewed, and appropriately resolved, and appoints a Conflict of Interest committee to manage this on an as-needed basis.
Requirements for successful CME activity completion
Participants must register on the AMBOSS platform, review the CME content, and complete the evaluation questions in order to claim CME credit. Participants should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. A certificate of completion will subsequently be emailed to participants.
