The Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development (CEPD), Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, is fully accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Continuing Medical Education (CACME), a subcommittee of the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS). This standard allows the Office of CEPD to assign credits for educational activities based on the criteria established by The College of Family Physicians of Canada, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Additionally, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education of the United States (ACCME) maintains a reciprocity relationship with CACME, which the American Medical Association (AMA) recognizes for the purpose of allowing Canadian medical schools the ability to accredit activities for AMA PRA Category 1. As a result of a reciprocal agreement between the AMA and the European Accreditation Council for CME (EACCME), this agreement permits the Office of CEPD to assign EACCME credits.
Letters of Accreditation/Attendance
Letters of accreditation/attendance will be available online following the conference. Participants will be e-mailed information approximately two weeks after completion of the course specifying how to obtain their letters online.
It is the policy of University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Continuing Education and Professional Development to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its individually accredited or jointly accredited educational programs. Speakers and/or planning committee members, participating in University of Toronto accredited programs, are expected to disclose to the program audience any real or apparent conflict(s) of interest that may have a direct bearing on the subject matter of the continuing education program. This pertains to relationships within the last FIVE (5) years with pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, or other corporations whose products or services are related to the subject matter of the presentation topic. The intent of this policy is not to prevent a speaker with a potential conflict of interest from making a presentation. It is merely intended that any potential conflict should be identified openly so that the listeners may form their own judgments about the presentation with the full disclosure of facts. It remains for the audience to determine whether the speaker's outside interests may reflect a possible bias in either the exposition or the conclusions presented.
