Symposia Jointly Sponsored With Non-Accredited Organization

ACCME-accredited sponsors in good standing may jointly sponsor continuing medical education activities with non-accredited entities.  Joint sponsorship and AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™ designation by the SIU School of Medicine for educational activities requires approval by the Office of Continuing Professional Development (OCPD) and the CPD committee.  The full-time SIU School of Medicine faculty member who serves as the liaison with the non-accredited organization must be fully cognizant of the requirements and responsibilities that joint sponsorship entails.
