Accredited CME, CLE & CDE

Where you want it, when you want it.

You practice in a dynamic and challenging environment and the need to keep professionally current on clinical as well as practice management and legal issues is obvious.  The question is when? American Educational Institute has provided the answer since 1982. Through October 2, 2022, you will have over 5,000 oppor­tunities to get the continuing education you want and the credits you need – away from the distractions and tumult of your practice. Far away. Like in Hawaii, Aspen, Aruba, Vail or any of our over 40 other premier travel destinations.

The courses, offered in weekly, M-F and Th-M schedules, is a uniquely curated, 20-hour survey of this broad yet critical array of topics. Produced in state-of-the-art studios with 4K digital technology, all programming is presented via COVID-safe, destination-based virtual classrooms.  So, as before you will participate during scheduled lecture hours in the travel destination of your choice and in the virtual but real-time and interactive company of other participants.  The difference is that instead of viewing the program in a designated, physical classroom you’ll do so on your laptop from the comfort and COVID safety of your hotel room or condominium.  It’s the best of all worlds: Pursing important CME, CDE & CLE in relaxed and enjoyable environments without taking additional time away from your practice, and doing so in comfort and safety with the ability to interact with a multi-discipline audience of professional pe­ers.

Between them The 2021-22 Medical-Legal Update and The 2021-22 Dental Update are approved for up to 20 AMA PRA Category 1™ Credits, AAFP Prescribed and ABIM MOC Credits, extensive CLE credit and our AGD and ADA accreditation is pending.  Both courses offer vital instruction from national experts in dentistry, law, medicine, pharmacology, asset protection, psychology and practice management presenting on a purposely broad selection of topical issues.

Critical CME, CDE and CLE – where you want to go and when you want to go there. That's been AEI's hallmark since 1982. A dis­tinction validated by over 100,000 re­gistrations and the fact that over 98% of our students say that they'd recommend AEI to their colleagues.

So pick your destination and receive in-depth and accredited instruction on important topics in a relaxed and beautiful environment with plenty of time left over to enjoy it.

If you've never studied with us before this must all sound a bit unusual. It is.

Frequently Asked Questions

How exactly does the Destination-based Virtual Classroom format work?

AEI’s new and unique destination-based, virtual classrooms are designed to mimic the format and learning environment of a physical classroom. Indeed, we sometimes call it “the classroom without the classroom”. Similar to AEI’s tradi­tional physical classrooms with AEI’s destina­tion-based virtual classrooms you will participate from the destination to which you’ve chosen to travel (within a 30 mile radius to be precise) during scheduled lecture hours. But, instead of viewing the course in the company of only those registered for the same destination that same week, you’ll now attend in the virtual and interactive company of everyone registered for all locations operating in the same time zone. This dramatically increases your opportunity for dialogue with other practitioners and, better still, lets you do so on your laptop or tablet from the safety and comfort of your hotel room or condominium.

While the traditional classroom model is quite good and has served us all very well, AEI’s new destination-based virtual classroom model is even better offering total COVID-safety, comfort, convenience and the opportunity for dialogue with many more colleagues from a variety of professional disciplines. Now you understand why we keep saying, “the best way to mix business with pleasure just got better.”

Are AEI's courses "live"?

AEI’s continuing education courses are produced in state-of-the-art production studios using 4K technology. While the course itself is a professional, studio shoot, it is presented to our learners via our Destination-based, Virtual Classrooms which utilize a “live” classroom environment. It is not self-study. Rather, registrants may attend an AEI course only at travel destination at which AEI offers a classroom, only during scheduled lecture hours and always under the supervision of AEI staff. All learners participate in the virtual but interactive company of all other participants similarly registered for that same week to any classroom in the same time zone. Finally, many learners have commented that AEI’s pre-recorded format results in a superior educational experience to live activities in which they’ve participated.
