Apply for endorsement
Please note: the College office is closed over the Christmas period and will not be processing endorsement applications until late January 2023.
To access the CME endorsement application form you need a login, which is different to the member login.
College Faculties should apply for CME endorsement through the Faculty CME application for single activity/event endorsement form.
If you are a pharmaceutical company and/or organisation offering education that is not based on standard practice, please email the endorsement team so we can chat about the best endorsement route for you.
Timeline for endorsement
To be considered for endorsement you need to apply for endorsement at least four weeks before your CME activity will be run.
Once your application is complete, we will confirm we have it. Then we aim to process applications in two weeks.
