Important Note: The ACPE requirements for accreditation (see CPE Accreditation Checklist below) must be submitted to UT CPE at least 45 days prior to the program start date or the date that promotion/marketing begins, whichever comes first.
CPE Accreditation Policy Statement
Failure of a Joint Providers organization to meet the ACPE requirements and UT CPE policies designated in the written Joint Providership Agreement may result in loss of accreditation for the CPE activity.
The UT Continuing Pharmacy Education Office (UT CPE) routinely accepts requests from organizations (Joint Providers) seeking accreditation for educational/training activities for pharmacists and technicians. Each activity is thoroughly evaluated to ensure it is aligned with UT CPE’s mission and that it meets ACPE Standards.
Accreditation of an activity by UT CPE is based upon its review/approval of the following aspects of the program: determination of need, topic selection, learning objectives, faculty selection/guidance, program content, marketing, commercial interest involvement, program facilitation, assessment of learning, and activity evaluation.
To initiate a request, please submit a CPE Accreditation Request Form.
For further assistance, please contact the UT CPE Office.
The ACPE requirements that are due to UT CPE have been summarized in the CPE Accreditation Checklist.
This information must be submitted to UT CPE at least 45 days prior to the program start date or the date that promotion/marketing begins, whichever comes first.
The checklist was created for Joint Providerships to use as a helpful guide to ensure all of the required information has been submitted. A more detailed explanation of each item on the checklist will be provided in the Joint Providership Agreement, which UT CPE issues to the Joint Provider at the very start of the accreditation process. The UT CPE accreditation coordinator will also work with the Joint Provider to ensure all information is correctly submitted and that the ACPE requirements are met.
