EMC-005: Joint Sponsor Policy Statement

Joint Sponsor Policy Statement: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports the position that: The Council on Medical Education will give preference to requests for activity sponsorship with AMA PRA Category 1 Creditâ„¢ approval from Society councils and committees planning activities that coincide with the Society Annual Meeting or other major meetings. The Council on Medical Education and the Society may decline any other request for sponsorship for any reason deemed appropriate. The Council will encourage organizations seeking sponsorship to use other available accreditation mechanisms or attain independent accreditation status. The Council may at its discretion recommend sponsorship as the source of last resort and on a one-time only basis. If the Council does not approve sponsorship, the requestor may appeal this decision to the Society Board of Directors, which shall make the final determination of whether to approve the activity sponsorship.
