Live Conference

Information for Course Directors and Conference Planners

If you are interested in providing AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™  (physician credits) or Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education continuing education credits (ACPE) for your live educational activity, please contact the Office of Continuing Education (OCE) early in the planning process.  The OCE has an experienced staff to guide you through the planning process to ensure that all accreditation expectations are met and your event is successful.


It is important to ensure compliance with accreditation standards as well as UAMS policies. Therefore, please contact us as early in the planning process as possible. Planning documents received 31-45 days before the activity will incur a rush fee to facilitate an expedited approval process.  Planning documents received 30 or fewer days before the activity will not be reviewed. Credits cannot be awarded for activities that have already occurred.

You can call the OCE at 501-661-7962 or email  for assistance.
