The UAMS Office of Continuing Education holds Joint Accreditation, a leading model for interprofessional collaborative practice. Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education establishes the standards for education providers to deliver interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) planned by the healthcare team for the healthcare team.

In support of improving patient care, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

We work with UAMS departments and health-related organizations, medical associations or societies, and other organizations to jointly provide accredited activities. We also provide meeting planning services.
