OCPD partners with departments within the University of Minnesota as well as external organizations, professional associations and hospitals/clinics to certify continuing education courses for the healthcare team. Course types that OCPD certifies include live in-person or virtual events, distance learning/enduring materials, and regularly-scheduled series such as grand rounds, journal clubs, and M&Ms.

OCPD relies on course directors and planning committee members to develop the content of the course. We assist with designing the format of the course to optimize clinician competence, performance and patient outcomes. If interested in developing a CE course that provides AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, and potentially additional credit types including ACPE, ANCC, and BOC, visit the Request for Course Certification page for more information about our request and certification process.
