CE/CME for Healthcare Providers

Providing and facilitating access to continuing education programs that help health care professionals to better provide compassionate, comprehensive, and quality care is one of SAAHEC’s fundamental services. We prioritize our CE/CME efforts on activities that address current and emerging healthcare issue affecting medically underserved areas and disadvantaged populations. 

CE PLANNING TOOLKIT

For Event Planners

SAAHEC supports organizations hosting continuing education events in our 3-county service area of Pima, Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties by seeking CE/CME accreditation of educational programs for healthcare providers across a variety of disciplines. To request assistance with seeking accreditation for an educational activity, please follow the steps outlined below. Steps 1 – 3 should take place at least 90 days prior to the planned activity.

If an agreement is reached, you will be asked to submit an application along with all supporting documents outlined in the CE checklist 75 days in advance of your activity. 

At least 90 days in advance of the planned activity, complete the CE Partnership Inquiry Form. Your responses to this form will help us determine if a partnership will be a good fit. 

The Event Planner Checklist is the list of items SAAHEC will need to collect for any CE/CME accredited event. 

After you complete the CE Partner Inquiry form, our CE Coordinator will reach out to you to schedule a meeting with your activity planner/planning team. We will discuss the partner inquiry form and next steps.

If an agreement is reached, you will be asked to submit the CE Application Form. This application is designed to document the essential components of a CE accreditation review and requirements. Documents and content undergo an internal and external review process. Please do not submit this form until you are instructed to do so.
