About Us

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.

In support of improving patient care, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.


The UAMS Office of Continuing Education ensures that all its CE activities meet the ANCC, ACPE, and ACCME Essential Criteria and the Standards for Commercial Support. The OCE may also work with non-accredited health-related organizations, medical associations or societies, to jointly provide accredited activities. The OCE also provides different levels of planning services from instructional design and curriculum development to a range of meeting planning and management options. For more information about applying for nursing, pharmacy, and/or physician credits or to inquire about our other services, please contact the OCE.
