Continuing Education Activities
Tufts University School of Medicine's Office of Continuing Education (TUSM OCE) is pleased to work with our affiliated hospitals on continuing education (CE) activities. As an accredited provider, we strive to uphold rigorous national standards for quality CE that improve clinician performance and care for patients and communities. Using a planning form, and other supporting documentation, TUSM OCE will lead you through an effective educational planning process. In doing so, we will highlight the quality standards required of CE providers and educational partners by the following national CE oversight and accrediting bodies: The American Medical Association (AMA), the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
