FCM Joint Providership Services
Within the framework of the ACCME requirements, there are opportunities for ACCME accredited providers like FCM to plan and implement CME activities with organizations that are not accredited by the ACCME. This approach refers to ‘joint providership’ and accounts for a sizable portion of the CME conducted annually by ACCME accredited providers.
