Joint Providership

NASS is pleased to consider your request to provide CME credit for your educational activity.


The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines a joint providership as the providership of a CME activity by one accredited and one nonaccredited organization. The North American Spine Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Applications for joint providerships must be received by NASS at least two months prior to the activity/meeting date.

NASS will NOT approve applications for joint providership from the following types of organizations:

  • Medical device/drug companies
  • Medical Education Companies (MECs)
