The Ohio State Medical Association is an ACCME accredited provider. 


Joint Providership is the term used when an ACCME accredited provider, such as the OSMA, plans and presents one or more educational activities with a non-ACCME accredited provider.

When working with a partner to Jointly Provide an education program for purposes of CME, the OSMA follows ACCME established national criteria for development, implementation and evaluation of the activity so as to provide physicians with a high quality and effective educational experience that meet AMA PRA Category 1(tm) CME requirements. The OSMA does enforce the 60-90 day notice requirement needed for proper planning and monitoring.

For lists of other accredited providers in Ohio, please visit the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. There are two lists to choose from: CME providers accredited by the ACCME (go to Ohio) and CME providers accredited by a state medical society (again, go to Ohio).

The Ohio State Medical Association received Accreditation with Commendation as a provider of Continuing Medical Education (CME) from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). This is the ACCME’s highest award status, reflecting the OSMA’s compliance with all 22 of ACCME’s accreditation criteria. The new accreditation runs until March 31, 2018.
