Administration of Continuing Medical Education Activities

Stanford Center for CME Must Manage All CME Activities

Because the Center for CME bears the responsibility for ensuring compliance with both the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Criteria and the Stanford School of Medicine Industry Interaction Policy, it must oversee all CME activities. For this reason, outside conference organizers (e.g. commercial interests or medical education companies) may not have any role in managing Stanford CME activities.

Use of the Stanford Campus by other CME Providers

All CME activities held on the Stanford campus must use Stanford School of Medicine as their certified provider.  This means that outside entities (e.g. hospitals, organizations or societies) may not conduct CME on the Stanford campus under sponsorship other than Stanford’s.

Joint Sponsorship

Stanford does not engage in jointly sponsored CME activities with non-accredited entities. Collaboration with academic institutions and not for profit organizations who are accredited CME providers will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  Proposals should be discussed with the Associate Dean for Postgraduate Medical Education.  Potential collaborations must be based on a willingness to fully comply with Stanford commercial support policies for the activity.

Use of the Stanford Name for CME

Only CME activities fully compliant with Stanford School of Medicine commercial support policies and administered through the Stanford Center for CME may use the Stanford name.
