11 Jun 2021 10:40 AM | NAMEC Staff (Administrator)

Accreditation Director (Cranbury, NJ) - MJH Life Sciences™

The Accreditation Director has a critical service-focused role within the Accredited Education Division.  Reporting into the SVP of MJH Operations, the Accreditation Director is tasked with maintaining accreditations with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the American Dental Association (ADA), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the California Board of Registered Nursing (CBRN) including preparing and defending re-accreditation self-study reports and related activity files.  In this role, you’ll collaborate with other internal stakeholders to obtain the information needed to prepare and submit applications for additional provider- and/or activity-level accreditations as directed (eg, eye care physician assistant, nurse practitioner, and EACCME). The Accreditation Director oversees and adjusts (as needed), the overarching framework for maintaining compliance with the regulatory guidelines and other guidance that govern accredited continuing healthcare education (CE).  You’ll oversee the maintenance of certification (MOC) process including registering activities in ACCME’s PARS system and managing the related administrative functions.  You’ll collaborate with internal Digital and Information Technology associates to ensure that each physician learner’s MOC points are accurately recorded and transferred.  You’ll also prepare related annual reports to accreditation agencies (eg, ACCME PARS reporting), coordinate peer reviews for Oncology Nursing News CE articles and Psychiatric Times CME that are accredited by PER®.

As Accreditation Director, you’ll stay abreast of the accredited CE landscape by attending key industry meetings (eg, ACCME’s Annual Spring Conference, Alliance Industry Summit, the Alliance Annual Conference, CME Palooza, and CBI CME Grants Conference) and engaging in self-directed continuing professional development (CPD).  You will also provide staff training to newly hired associates who work within the Accredited Education Division and develop/update an online staff training curriculum.  The Accreditation Director is also involved in special research projects, abstract development, writing articles, and developing oral and written presentations to the continuing education (CE) industry. This position (preferably in our Cranbury, NJ campus), requires flexibility, integrity, creativity, organization, and strong interpersonal skills.

What a typical day is like for an Accreditation Director:

  • Participating in project team kick-off meetings, where the background information of activities is provided along with their educational design, types of accreditation, and potential educational partners (joint- or co-providers);
  • Using strict attention to detail, review incoming marketing- and activity-related materials (workbooks/syllabi, online activity front matter) against approved copy for accuracy and compliance.
  • Leveraging strong organizational skills and a keen attention to detail to use activity grant proposals to prepare required ACCME structured abstract forms and other accreditation files with accreditation-related information (needs assessment, gap analysis, learning objectives, etc.) and maintain this documentation on the company server in the related project folders;
  • Preparing accreditation applications including those for AANP, AAPA, and EACCME using pertinent information contained in grant proposals and with consultation from internal departments (eg, Medical Affairs and Independent Medical Education) as needed.
  • Coordinating MOC efforts (including routing applicable documentation to them, and managing the invoicing process); and
  • Creating and submit related post-activity reports to accreditation agencies (AANP, EACCME, and others as required).

What skills does an Accreditation Director need?

  • A positive attitude, passion for winning, and willingness to be part of a high-functioning accredited education division unit that juggles multiple responsibilities (maintaining activity files, reviewing related activity materials for compliance, and post-activity evaluation reporting) on a consistent basis.
  • Proven experience with preparing, submitting, and defending CE accreditation/re-accreditation applications (eg, self-study reports and activity files).
  • A minimum of 5 years of progressive experience in positions of increasing responsibility within an ACCME or other healthcare-related accredited organization (eg, ACPE, ANCC, ADA, or COPE).
  • Expert knowledge of accredited CE and federal regulatory guidelines and other guidance that governs accredited CE.
  • The ability to analyze, interpret, and report learner evaluation data collected during educational activities.
  • A demonstrated ability to think independently, be proactive, and operate as an analytic problem solver who requires minimal supervision.
  • Clear (verbal and written) communication style that is adaptable to a wide variety of audiences (eg, regulators, key executives, faculty thought leaders, staff, and external clients.
  • An intermediate to advanced competency with MS Excel (formulas, pivot tables, charts/graphs), MS Word (style guides, formatting, templates), PowerPoint (audio/video embedding, master slides), and Adobe Acrobat Writer (add/delete pages, edit content).

Goals for First Year:

  1. Independently manage the ACCME annual reporting process (from assembly to, finalization, approval, and submission in PARS).

  2. Lead the preparation and submission of PER’s reaccreditation with ACCME and ACPE.

  3. Independently manage activity-related American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) MOC (from registration to data collection and reporting).

  4. Refine interdepartmental strategies for working effectively in both joint- and co-providerships with educational partners.
