Conjoint Accreditation Services
Announcement – January 2016
Conjoint Accreditation Services has announced that it will take steps to divest itself of responsibility for assessing and accrediting Canadian health education programs in designated health science professions within the next 24 months.
Following an extensive review, it has become apparent that accreditation functions lie outside the mandate of
JouleTM – CMA’s newest company and Conjoint Accreditation Services' governing body – which is focused on the personal and point-of-care needs of individual physicians.
Conjoint Accreditation Services is planning a responsible exit that will involve significant stakeholder consultation and transition planning.
Conjoint Accreditation Services will continue to operate for up to 24 months and scheduled accreditation activity within that period will continue to be offered. Given the implications beyond the 24-month period, new applications will not be accepted.
