Boston Children’s Hospital has taken an exciting step forward in our mission to teach the next generation of caregivers and foster the continued growth and development of our medical staff — as well as clinicians around the world. Boston Children’s is now the first pediatric hospital in the United States to earn Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education™.

As evidence of the quality of our programs, Joint Accreditation offers us the opportunity to be simultaneously accredited to provide interprofessional continuing education activities through a single, unified application process, fee structure, and set of accreditation standards from multiple global leaders in the field of accreditation.

By offering these accreditations in one review process, Joint Accreditation promotes interprofessional continuing education activities specifically designed to improve interprofessional collaborative practice in health care delivery.

Joint Accreditation is the leading model of interprofessional collaboration that helps improve health care through continuing education for the team, by the team.
