Forms and Policies
Whether you are considering, a live conference, an Internet enduring program, a regularly scheduled series (e.g., grand rounds), a live Webinar, a journal program, a combination of these, or something else, we can help. If you are new to CME, most planners will tell you that developing a successful CME program takes longer than you might expect. As an accredit provider of CME, we can help you offer AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to your learners.
Your CME planning process will probably begin before you contact us about providership, but we will need at least 60 days to review your application. Remember, you cannot mention CME credit in your marketing materials until you have received our approval. Please contact the Office of Continuing Professional Education to clarify processing and approval times.
The ACCME and IMS have rigorous standards for providers of CME credit. Accredited CME must be linked to physician practice gaps and healthcare quality gaps. Educational objectives and program outcomes must be written to address a documented professional practice gap and describe it in terms of physician knowledge, competence or performance.
St. Vincent’s Health System CME Mission Statement emphasizes the importance of linking expected results with measurable quality outcomes for all CME programs.
To receive a listing of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) or CE credit(s) that you have accrued through the Office of Continuing Professional Education, please call (205) 838-3225 or email email@example.com
