Continuing Education in Healthcare Professions

Enhancing interprofessional health care education and patient outcomes 


Enhance interprofessional health care education and patient outcomes through strategic and innovative collaborative education.



As the preeminent provider and accrediting body of comprehensive and innovative lifelong learning opportunities through educational activities for health care teams, it is our mission to enhance health care outcomes through educational activities that foster innovation and excellence in knowledge, practice and change in strategy and/or performance of the health care team in the state of Indiana and beyond.


Expected Outcomes

Indiana University School of Medicine's Division of Continuing Education in Healthcare Professions is committed to assessing the impact of its overall program on clinical competence and/or patient- and systems-level outcomes. It is expected that learners acquire new knowledge, skills and attitudes that contribute to enhancing health care.


JA logoIn support of improving patient care, Indiana University School of Medicine 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 health care team.

Under the Joint Accreditation (JA) guidelines, IU School of Medicine can award credit to physicians, nurses, and pharmacists through a single, unified application process and set of accreditation standards. IU School of Medicine can also provide verification of attendance to other members of the health care team, including dentists, dietitians, optometrists, physician assistants, psychologists and social workers.
