What can we help you find?
We are delighted to announce a new opportunity: jointly accredited providers now have the option of offering accredited continuing education (CE) activities and profession-specific credit for dentists.
At our leadership summits and other educational events, we’ve discussed the importance of expanding the Joint Accreditation team to include more health professions. We initiated the collaboration with our colleagues at ADA in response to your requests and because of our commitment to team-based education. Our goal is to increase the benefits you already receive from our unified accreditation process and to support your efforts to deliver high-quality, effective IPCE that improves team collaboration and patient care.
We welcome your questions and feedback. Please contact us [email protected].
