The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. ASAPS jointly provides (assigns CME) and endorses a variety of educational meetings throughout the year.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) educational planning, development, and execution have been reviewed by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and awarded Accreditation with Commendation status for a term of six years as a provider of continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. 

ASAPS has held the Commendation distinction since 2010.

ACCME’s Accreditation with Commendation assures plastic surgeons and the public that the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery delivers education that is relevant to its audience’s clinical needs, evidence-based, evaluated for its effectiveness, and independent of commercial influence, all of which put patients first.

The ACCME Accreditation System employs a rigorous process for evaluating organizations' CME programs according to standards that reflect the values of the educator community and aim to accelerate learning, inspire change, and champion improvements in patient outcomes. Through participation in accredited CME, plastic surgeons and their healthcare teams drive improvement in their practices and optimize the care, health, and wellness of their patients. 

The Annual Meeting of ASAPS and ASERF (Aesthetic Surgery Education & Research Foundation) is held each spring. This meeting is widely recognized as the most important event, nationally and internationally, for clinical education and research in aesthetic surgery.  ASAPS reserves the right to restrict admission to its meetings.
