Important CME Changes

  • Due to the implementation of new requirements for Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC), the AOA CME program has been updated to track and record CME credits at all levels. As part of this effort, the AOA has launched a new platform for recording and maintaining physician records.

  • Beginning with the current CME cycle ending Dec. 31, 2012, AOA members will have five months to fulfill their CME requirements. Previously, members were allowed 17 months following the close of a cycle to fulfill the CME requirement and maintain their AOA membership and AOA board certification. If you have questions about the change, contact the CME Service Center at cme@osteopathic.org.

  • To verify expiration dates for Michigan an osteopathic physician license/registration, please visit the Bureau of Health Care Services.
