Benefits of Joint Providership With ADCES

You'll also have access to our clinical resources and continuing education accreditation expertise.

Joint Providership Application Process and Deadlines

CE/CME Process

The ACCME defines joint providership of a CME activity by one or more accredited and one or more non-accredited organizations. Therefore, jointly accredited providers like ADCES that plan and present one or more activities with non-accredited providers are engaging in “joint providership.”

Learn About the Process

Application Eligibility Verification

If you’re interested in entering a joint providership (i.e., JointCE) partnership with ADCES, you must first complete the eligibility verification form and meet all eligibility requirements. Verification forms that do not meet eligibility requirements will be rejected without substantive review.

Before contacting us, please check that you meet the following.


Preliminary Requirements for Medical Education Entities

You must provide us with at least a two-week timeline to review faculty, proposed content learning objectives, outline and method of delivery. We cannot accept urgent requests.

ADCES must accredit your educational activity with at least one professional discipline credit type under our joint accreditation status (e.g., nurses, dietitians, PAs, pharmacists, physicians and/or social workers).
