3. Once an agenda has been developed, the Director of CE will review the information for compliance and to calculate credit. A CE Committee member will review the Practice Gap / Needs Assessment information, Educational Objectives, Agenda, etc., to ensure appropriate scientific content and the Associate Dean for CE will review for final approval. The Director will notify the Joint Provider and/or soliciting department in writing of approval, credit hours, and stipulations to maintain credit approval. The approval letter will include the accreditation statements and other information that must be included in the publicity. Any changes or adjustments to the program following approval must be submitted to the Director for review. This review process usually takes one to two weeks. Every effort is made to expedite approvals, but it is suggested that you submit your information at least two weeks prior to the date you plan to finalize your publicity.
