Founded in 1991, AACE is a professional organization dedicated to the promotion of clinical endocrinology with the goal of achieving a better state of public health and patient care. The organization helps endocrinology practitioners uphold the highest levels of practice standards by providing several options for continuing education, one of which is a self-assessment program.
AACE's self-assessment program features a core curriculum that gives updated information on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and other aspects of managing endocrine-system conditions. Course materials are specially designed to satisfy the cognitive needs of practitioners, thereby ensuring greater efficacy in the delivery of care. The program is purely online, and to ensure that attendees have completely understood the concepts presented, they need to pass a post-activity evaluation prior to receiving credit.
Access to the 76 available credits costs $375. Those interested in learning more about the program may visit education.aace.com.
