Q: Do you offer joint providership opportunities? 
A: Yes. However, all entities interested in joint providership are vetted by the CME office for eligibility and are required to submit a Joint Providership Questionnaire/Agreement in order for us to determine eligibility in agreement with the ACCME policy on joint providership. Also, note that UC San Diego generally does not participate in any joint providership, regardless of the entity’s organizational structure, unless the lead faculty member has a UC San Diego affiliation. Read Joint Providership Guidelines with Non-UC San Diego Organization.

Q: Does the ACCME have special rules regarding Joint Providership? 
A: Yes, click here for more information.

Q: Our company is a commercial interest as defined by the ACCME, can we still be a joint provider? 
A: No, a commercial interest is not eligible for joint providership.

Q: What is the difference between directly sponsored and jointly provided?
A: A directly provided activity is one that is planned, implemented and evaluated by UC San Diego CME as the accredited provider. These are courses that are presented by UC San Diego, with no formal involvement from outside organizations. The majority of activities accredited by UC San Diego fall under this category.

In contrast, a jointly provided activity is one that is planned, implemented and evaluated by the UC San Diego CME and another non-accredited entity.
