Thank you for your interest in a Continuing Education activity through the IHS Clinical Support Center (CSC) Office of Continuing Education (OCE), the accredited provider for the Indian Health Service. Accredited organizations demonstrate quality and excellence in CE and must meet comprehensive, evidenced-based criteria to ensure CE activities are effectively planned, implemented, and evaluated. CSC carries accreditation from three prominent national accreditation bodies.

CSC has a long-standing commitment to offering quality continuing education for the healthcare team, the physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals, in support of optimizing patient care. Educational programs are designed to engage learners in interactive learning sessions; provide the most up-to-date information and strategies; and develop or enhance skills that may be applied in clinical practice.

Our mission is to develop and support continuing professional education activities meeting the needs of Indian health program health care providers throughout the United States. The purpose of these educational activities is to assist providers in maintaining and enhancing their clinical competence in order to promote high quality health care for all American Indians and Alaskan Natives.

Regardless of whether you are a beginner or experienced in the continuing education process, the most important thing to remember is to contact us at the Clinical Support Center at least 30 days prior to your CE activity. We must be involved in the early planning stages of your activity to insure compliance with accreditation guidelines.
