In order to be considered for joint providership with the AOA, the interested organization must meet all of the following requirements:
- Not be an ACCME-accredited provider
- Have a mission statement and purpose or function that aligns with AOA’s purpose and CME mission
- Submit the AOA Joint Providership Educational Plan application at least 45 days before the first day of the CME activity
NOTE: ACCME does not permit ineligible entities to be joint providers. ACCME defines an ineligible entity as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by or used on patients. Providers of clinical service directly to patients are not considered to be ineligible entities, unless the provider of clinical service is owned or controlled by an ACCME-defined ineligible entity. Further information is provided on the ACCME website.
