- Demonstrate knowledge of basic processes linking molecular and cellular biology and genetics with allergic pathophysiology and immunodeficiency.
- Translate emerging clinical science principles to clinical practice in patients with allergic and immunologic diseases.
- Evaluate and implement state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for treating patients with allergic and immunologic diseases.
- Explain the impact of environmental exposures and external influences on patients with allergic disorders.

The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ will be available for this activity.
Maintenance of Certification
The American Board of Allergy and Immunology’s (ABAI) Maintenance of Certifcation (MOC) program facilitates a physician’s commitment to lifelong learning. Part II of ABAI’s MOC Program requires that diplomates obtain 25 CME Credits in the areas of allergy and/or immunology on an annual basis. The CME Credits for the Annual Meeting can be used to satisfy this requirement.
The ABAI recommends that 6 of the 25 annual CME credits be designated as Self-Assessment (MOC Part II) credit.
ACAAI seamlessly transfers your Annual Meeting CME and MOC Part II Credits to the ABAI at the end of the calendar year.
Please note that Faculty cannot earn CME or MOC Part II Credit for their presentations.
ACAAI is committed to providing educational activities that align with the ABAI Core Competencies, which include:
- Patient Care and Procedural Skills
- Medical Knowledge
- Practice-based Learning and Improvement
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
- Systems-based Practice
