ACPE accredited providers may collaborate on content development with ACPE and/or non-ACPE accredited providers. When they enter into this relationship it is called Joint Providership. ACPE expects all CPE activities to be in compliance with the Accreditation Standards for Continuing Pharmacy Education and the ACPE Policies and Procedures. It is the accredited provider’s responsibility to demonstrate to ACPE compliance through written documentation. The UTHSC College of Pharmacy has accredited programming for health system, interprofessional group, society, community, individual, and residency programs.
