St. Francis is accredited to provide AMA PRA Category Credit(s) ™ by the South Carolina Medical Association (SCMA) through the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The ACCME and SCMA requires procedures be instituted to ensure compliance with all ACCME and SCMA Elements and Policies.
- There are forms and documentation required to be completed before an activity can be certified for credit by the CME Committee (see below.) The CME Committee meets on the 4th Monday of every month.
- All marketing materials must be approved by the CME Coordinator prior to distribution. This includes flyers, posters, brochures, email blasts, and regular mail.
