Amongst said goodies is a pdf download link to the Annual Report Data 2009, which gives us a peek into what's going with with ACCME-accredited providers, plus state- and medical society-accredited providers. I haven't had a chance to crunch the numbers yet, but others are already on top of it (query: Does anyone else wonder if Thomas Sullivan ever sleeps?).
Just a quick glance at the 2009-2008 numbers tells a story, though:
Total CME income: down almost 8 percent
Commercial support: down almost 18 percent
Number of accredited providers: down by 18
Number of activities: down almost 6 percent
Hours of instruction: down 10 percent
(Here's a link to our writeup of last year's report, which wasn't terribly rosy, either.)
What, me worry?
