Enduring materials by definition are available when the physician participant chooses to complete the activity. It is "enduring", meaning that there is not just one time on one day to participate.
To complete the application you will need to provide the following:
- Identify the Activity Director and a contact person. The Activity Director is required to provide their CV and disclose relationships with any commercial entity.
- Description of the proposed program: title, date, times, length of the program, and location.
- Why this program is needed? What clinical problem or medical knowledge issue is to be addressed?
- How did you determine this program is needed?
What do you want the outcome of the activity to be?
- Who do you want to attend the activity?
- Who is on your planning committee? Disclosure forms and CVs are required from all planning committee members.
- Approving Authority: all applications must be approved by either the corresponding ETSU Departmental Chair or the facility's Director of Medical Education.
- What type of medium or combination of media do you envision being included?
- What equipment is required for the learner to participate in the educational activity?
- Who are the principal faculty and his/her/their credentials?
- Do you have a budget for this activity?
Submission Deadline: Applications for Enduring Material must be submitted not less than 90 days prior to the proposed event. If you anticipate OCME applying for educational grants we must receive no less than 160 days in advance.
Applications received by the 1st of each month will be scheduled for review during the following month's meeting, i.e. applications received by February 1 will be reviewed during the March meeting. Please Note: The Board traditionally does not meet in January or July, therefore applications received by December 1 will be reviewed during the February meeting and June 1 will be reviewed during the August meeting - please keep this in mind when submitting your application.
