ACCME Faculty Regulations
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), as our accrediting organization, requires all educational activities to be based upon measurable needs or deficiencies (“practice gaps”) in the physician’s practice. As a moderator or presenter, the Aesthetic Society depends on you to help define these practice gaps as they relate to your panel topic. We ask that you address the specific practice gaps presented by the panelists. We require all panel content to be accurate, current, scientifically based and objectively presented.
- Disclosure: We require all presenters/instructors to disclose all relevant financial relationships or affiliations. Participation in educational programs will not be allowed without this disclosure. Click here to complete your disclosure if you have not already done so. All faculty are also required to verbally disclose your financial relationships or state Nothing to Disclose at the start of your presentation.

- Presentation Review: As an accredited organization of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), our accreditation is important as we strive to plan activities that meet the ACCME’s expectations and standards. Because we are responsible for ensuring that the content of our CME activities is presented with accurate, balanced, scientifically justified recommendations that serve the needs of patients and not the interest of industry, we will need to review all presentations prior to the meeting. If you have not done so already, please send your presentation to Taryn Daigle at email@example.com

- Virtual Audience: The sessions you are presenting in are being live streamed to our remote audience as well as recorded for on-demand availability after the meeting.
