|In support of improving patient care, Rutgers Biomedical and Health 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 healthcare team.
Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) plans and provides a continuing education program with the goal of improving the skills, strategies, and performance of healthcare team members, including, but not limited to, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and behavioral health professionals.
To accomplish this goal, we:
- Provide educational opportunities in a variety of formats covering clinical and non-clinical topics.
- Employ educational methods that encourage interactivity and sustainability based on adult learning principles, learning styles, and collaborating within the healthcare team in order for learners to learn with, from and about each other whenever possible.
- Promote interprofessional and discipline-specific collaborative care that is quality focused, safe, patient-centered, and evidence based.
- Involve health professions students and trainees as planners and teachers to better support learners across the continuum and position students and trainees as members of a collaborative practice team.
- Align education with public health priorities and population health issues; collaborate with local, regional and national organizations to more effectively address these issues.
- Identify barriers to performance and employ strategies to address or remove those barriers through education.
- Incorporate patients, caregivers, public representatives, peers, and other stakeholders as planners and teachers as members of the communities that our learners serve.
- Embed diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility into program planning and educational content and delivery.
Our overall goal is to enhance the functioning of the healthcare team, which supports the institution’s dedication to interprofessional collaboration and integration.
The mission of the Rutgers University Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy’s Office of Continuing Education, as an entity within RBHS, is to serve the educational needs of pharmacy professionals and other members of the healthcare team through the provision of educational activities designed to empower the learner to achieve, retain, and strengthen professional competencies.
Rutgers University’s School of Pharmacy has provided continuing education programs for pharmacists since the late 1940s. From the time when the first requirements for CE credits for pharmacist licensure renewal were instituted in New Jersey and elsewhere, Rutgers has offered approved CE credits on an annual basis. Since ACPE accreditation for continuing education was first available, Rutgers has been an ACPE-accredited provider.
Rutgers has a long and proud history as a provider of quality continuing education in pharmacy. The annual Rutgers pharmaceutical conference was instituted in 1951 and has been in continuous operation since that time. We offer many live activities with our stellar faculty serving as many of the presenters as well as on-line virtual and home study activities. The University has a deep commitment to providing quality continuing education and continuing professional development opportunities for its stakeholders and community of learners.
The governing bodies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Accreditation Program (ANCC) have completed their review of your application for reaccreditation as a provider of continuing education for the healthcare team. We are pleased to announce that Joint Accreditation with Commendation has been granted for 6 years through July 2028. Click here for more information.
