AOA CME Guide for Physicians

Effective January 1, 2013, all American Osteopathic Association (AOA) specialty certifying boards implemented a continuous certification process for osteopathic physicians, called “Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC).” This “AOA CME Guide for Osteopathic Physicians” is intended to outline the requirements for OCC Component 2: Lifelong Learning/Continuing Medical Education (CME), and the activities that may serve to meet those requirements. These requirements are required of all physicians who hold osteopathic board certification through the AOA and its 18 specialty certifying boards (also known as diplomates).
