Joint Providership Resource Center
The Medical Foundation of Alabama is accredited by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama to jointly provide accredited continuing education activities with non-accredited organizations. The accredited continuing education committee’s effort in education is to complement, not compete with, accredited continuing education offerings of medical schools, specialty societies, hospitals and other accredited intrastate organizations. The Medical Foundation’s purpose is to provide, through joint providerships with non-accredited entities, additional offerings of high-quality, evidence-based education that promotes change, development and improvement. Opportunities are designed to advance physician competence, enhance practice performance, promote patient safety and, where possible, improve patient outcomes in the populations the participating healthcare providers serve.
For some organizations, Joint Providership is the first step in becoming an accredited provider as the Medical Foundation mentors an unaccredited group through the steps to establish the necessary framework for an independently accredited continuing education program and build a track record of offering accredited continuing education.
The Medical Foundation also offers Joint Providership to those organizations that do not wish to become accredited, either because they offer a very limited number of activities and/or have limited resources and personnel available to support their educational offerings.
