Activity Planners

Role and Responsibilities

UUCME operates using a decentralized model. For details of expectations of both the department and UUCME, see UUCME Expectations.

As you move through the planning, execution, and evaluation of your activity, the CME Office will guide you through the CME process.  We do not provide event planning or logistical assistance, but can help with CME or educational-oriented questions.

Other tips and helpful advice

If you are coordinating an on-going series, please use this Coordinator Packet to assist you in your duties and keep up with our requirements.

If you plan to seek unrestricted educational grants from ineligible companies, you will need our help in completing the Commercial Support Letter of Agreement.  We can discuss this with you anytime and during your planning meeting. 

If you plan to have exhibitors at your activity, you are not required to complete a Letter of Agreement, but we strongly suggest you do have a written agreement between you and the company exhibiting. You can use our example (exhibitor written agreement).  Remember - exhibitors must be outside of the learning space and no logos may be present.  Please contact us to talk more about this, if you have questions. 

UUCME is able to and excited to work with outside organizations seeking to provide joint providerships for credit. The educational activity must be consistent with the CME mission and policies of the University of Utah School of Medicine and must meet all of the compliance criteria of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). We may require, at our discretion, that jointly provided activities with non-accredited organizations have a University of Utah faculty member as the course director or as one of the planners. Contact the the University of Utah CME Office regarding opportunities, questions and fees for jointly provided activities.
