RSS Planning Documents & Resources

Below you will find the required planning form and supplemental documents. The OCE operates on an academic calendar year, July 1 - June 30. We do not accept forms after the start of an academic year, July 1st.

Please make sure to review the Session Documents page as well as the End of Series page for a complete overview of the documentation required.

TUSM OCE Policy for RSS Sessions with Commercial Support

The OCE must submit all educational grant requests to potential funders and all approved grant funds will be made payable to the OCE to disburse the funds accordingly. There will be grant management fees associated with each grant request the OCE manages for your series. Please contact the OCE at 617.636.6579 if you would like to discuss further details.

NOTE: If your department/division wishes to submit a grant request directly, you may do so as an activity not offered for CME (TUSM OCE will not offer credit for those funded sessions).

eeds

We would like to inform you about an online tool, eeds (electronic education documentation system), which various departments have utilized and we highly recommend.
