It was 2009 and conversations had begun regarding whether becoming jointly accredited would be positive for the continuing education (CE) program at my university. Becoming jointly accredited can be positive for an organization.
Like many of you, at the beginning of the year I did some self-reflection and established some personal and professional goals, aka New Year’s resolutions. I am happy to report that I achieved a professional goal: becoming an ACCME site surveyor.
Providers interested in Joint Accreditation take notice! On June 11, 2019, modifications to the Joint Accreditation Criteria were announced along with a new option for commendation. These modifications are effective June 1, 2020, and parallel many of the advancements from ACCME with their criteria.
The co-founders of the Joint Accreditation have created a unique program and credit system to incentivize development of and participation in interprofessional continuing education (IPCE).
