The SLU CME Office offers several different levels of administrative support for your course. Fees are negotiated upward based on the length and complexity of the activity, administrative support and services required, and attendance numbers.
Activities for which administrative support is provided by the CME office, including, but not limited to planning, financials and purchasing, faculty coordination, promotion, registration, A/V services, negotiations for hotel, catering and facilities, commercial support, syllabus materials, on-site staffing and AMA credits. Additional services such as management of extensive faculty, exhibits, special events, application for other CME credits and some locations will increase the minimum fee due to additional staff time required.
The sponsoring department or organization will manage all aspects of the course and SLU CME will provide only accreditation services.
Although the CME office may not manage the activity overall, a certain level of involvement is required to fulfill the responsibilities for maintaining compliance with Accreditation Council guidelines and includes:
- Planning, review and certification for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM
- Review and approval of promotional items for compliance in advance of production
- Monitor activity for compliance with ACCME Essentials and Standards for Commercial Support
- Process and email certificates of attendance
- Record keeping and maintenance of course attendance records
