Planning your Accredited Continuing Education (CE) program in advance will allow for maximum participation, lower certification fees, and a more enjoyable planning experience overall.  

To help you with your CE planning process and ensure the program is planned in accordance with Joint Accreditation Requirements, an application for accredited CE must be submitted to the CME Division. Late submissions will result in an additional rush fee. 

Note: The Carver College of Medicine CME Division may not be able to accredit programs for which educational planning (e.g., topic and speaker selection) has already begun. 

An application must be submitted and approved by the CME Division before any mention of CE credits can be made on marketing materials.

Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education

All planners, faculty, and others in control of educational content are required to disclose all financial relationships with ineligible companies within the prior 24 months before planning the education.  An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients. 

The Standards for Integrity and Independence require that we disqualify individuals who refuse to provide this information from involvement in the planning and implementation of accredited continuing education.  

Financial relationships must be reviewed to identify which relationships are relevant. Relevant financial relationships must be mitigated prior to the individuals assuming their roles. Our program coordinators will assist with the review and necessary mitigation.
