Committee on Proposal Review

Harvard Medical School's Committee on Proposal Review was established to review and, as appropriate, recommend approval for assigning AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to continuing education activities submitted to the HMS Department of Continuing Education in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. Accreditation Criteria and Standards for Commercial Support, American Medical Association requirements and policies and HMS standards and policies.
