The purpose of the AAAAI’s CME program is to provide, and ensure the quality of, educational activities that will develop, maintain, update, enhance, or make more clinically effective the study and practice of allergy, asthma, and immunology.

The expected results of the AAAAI’s CME program are to advance either:

- learners’ practice of the clinical specialty of allergy, asthma, and immunology, measured by self-reporting of changes in practice behavior attributed to their participation in CME activities.
