CME Planning Process / Certification Forms for Live Activities

The following are documents used for the certification of all live activities with the exception of Regularly Scheduled Series, or RSS. If you are seeking certification for an RSS, please consult the Regularly Scheduled Series (RSS) Documents section below.

Application for Category 1 Credit Resources

Once a CME Proposal for Consideration has been completed and approved for your activity, you will be sent an Application for Category 1 Credit to complete. This document is not included in this section as each application is customized per the details of your specific educational activity and will be sent to you as notification that your Proposal has been approved. The following resources should aid you in the completion of the application as well as the onsite logistics of your event.

Joint Providership Forms 

Joint providership CME activities are defined as those in which a faculty member approaches OSU CCME on behalf of a not-for-profit organization outside of the institution to certify a CME activity for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s).  A faculty member, for these purposes, is a regular faculty member employed by either the University or the Wexner Medical Center in a teaching, research or administrative capacity.  The proposed program must be one for which at least one OSU faculty member serves in the primary role of initiating, planning and overseeing the educational content and quality.  In addition, the faculty member’s chair must recommend approval of the program.  The program must also be approved by the Dean or his/her decanal designee.  The joint providership must be with an established scientific or professional organization.  The activity or the organization must be consistent with the academic, research, and patient care mission of The Ohio State University.
