MECOP was formed in 1986 through Sacred Heart Hospital and West Florida Hospital in response to new Florida requirements for 40 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for re-licensure.  Florida State University’s College of Medicine affiliated in 2002.

The company operates as a small not-for-profit 501(c)3 business, with 2 primary affiliate organizations (Sacred Heart Health System and FSU College of Medicine), none of which have ownership.

MECOP is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide CME credits nationally.

MECOP is funded by fees for CME activities, including 10% from all commercial support; meeting planning services, and funding from the 2 affiliated organizations.

The organization is directed by an active, physician Board of Directors.  CME compliance is also physician led by MECOP's Curriculum Committee.
