The UAMS Office of Continuing Education (OCE) ensures that all its CE activities meet the ANCC, ACPE, and ACCME’s Essential Criteria and the Standards for Commercial Support.

The OCE works with non-accredited health-related organizations, medical associations or societies, to jointly provide accredited activities. We also provide different levels of planning services from instructional design and curriculum development, to a range of meeting planning and management options.

The healthcare team relies on accredited continuing education to help them improve their practice and deliver high-quality, safe, effective patient care. Accredited educational activities address a full range of topics important to health care—from the latest breakthroughs in medical research to providing patient-centered care.

The UAMS Office of Continuing Education provides accreditation and planning services for continuous professional development for nurses, pharmacists, physicians, and other allied health professionals.
