Policies and Guidelines

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.

Honorarium and Reimbursement Policy
Honoraria for guest faculty* will be set by the course director upon the recommendation of the course planning committee.  The speaker’s background, the usual honorarium for the discipline, and other relevant facts will be considered.
