Criterion 9: #7064

Finding
Noncompliance

Evidence submitted by the provider demonstrated that meetings between learners and industry representatives in a commercial exhibit hall was considered part of their educational activity. Although the exhibits were not in the same room as lectures and video demonstrations, discussion with representatives of the commercial interest at the exhibit was considered by the provider to be part of the learner’s CME experience for which they earned credit. 


Rationale: The provider did not appropriately maintain a separation between promotion and education.
