Continuing Medical Education

Honoraria and Reimbursement Policy


The planning committee of an activity may establish the amount of the honoraria for the activity's authors and faculty. Neither Wright State University nor the Boonshoft School of Medicine has a prescribed scale for honoraria.

Arrangements for honoraria must be confirmed in writing by the planning committee. For tax reporting purposes payment of honoraria to an individual must be made to that individual's home address or a business tax ID and address. The CME Program observes the ACCME's Standards for Commercial Support.

School of Medicine departments must follow WSU rules for honoraria including completing appropriate vendor forms for non-WSU employees.

Payment of honoraria for an external speaker is customary and proper. Honoraria will be made directly to the speaker by WSU, the joint sponsor, or the designated educational partner. The speaker may not accept additional payments as it relates to this activity from other sources. Employees of Wright State University and Wright State Physicians must follow respective honoraria procedures. Contact the department chair for more information.


Reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses will be paid according to University Policy 9510. Expenses must be itemized and listed on the appropriate form with original receipts for all expenses and submitted to the activity planners.

Speakers, planners, activity chair, joint sponsor or any others may not accept additional payments as it relates to a certified CME activity from other sources.
