As of July 26, 2021, Neuroscience Education Institute (NEI) is recognized as a jointly accredited provider of interprofessional continuing education.

What does joint accreditation mean?
  • NEI is now simultaneously accredited to provide continuing education (CE) credits for multiple professions—physician, pharmacist, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, psychologist, and social worker, separately or together.
  • Joint accreditation demonstrates NEI’s clear commitment to CE “by the team for the team” to improve health care delivery and patient care.
What is Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE)?
  • IPCE is when members from two or more professions learn with, from, and about each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.
  • IPCE credits identify team-based CE activities. They do not replace education or credits for individual professions—they are in addition to credits for individual professions.
