Criterion 9

The provider maintains a separation of promotion from education (SCS 4).

ACCME Note

If an accredited provider allows promotional opportunities adjunctive to its education, it must ensure that learners can participate in the education without interacting with the promotion. As described in Standard for Commercial Support 4, there are specific requirements for where, when, and how promotion can exist alongside (but separate from) accredited education.
