Requirements for CE Credit

The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
This knowledge-based activity is approved for 9 hours of LIVE continuing education credit and 16.5 hours of HOME STUDY continuing education credit.  In order to receive CE credit, the participant must complete the virtual activity sessions (whether live or recorded) then complete the online evaluation that follows each accredited session.  After an online evaluation is submitted, CE credit is transmitted directly to CPE Monitor within two weeks.

To earn CE credit after participating in LIVE or On Demand session(s), you must submit an online evaluation (there is an online evaluation for each accredited session).  It is the participant's responsibility to confirm CE credit has been awarded correctly by logging into their CPE Monitor profile (allow 7 days for credit to upload to CPE Monitor after submitting an evaluation).  Credit discrepancies must be reported to UT Continuing Pharmacy Education within 60 days of submitting an evaluation (corrections cannot be made after 60 days).  To avoid credit discrepancies, please ensure that your NABP e-ID and DOB (MM/DD) are entered correctly in your profile prior to completing the evaluations.   

Important Note about LIVE CE Credit If you need to claim LIVE CE credit for attending the LIVE Broadcast, be sure to complete an online evaluation for each session within 7 days after the LIVE BROADCAST (before October 4).  After 7 days have passed, live sessions are transitioned to On Demand activities that offer homestudy credit.
