Important CME Changes
The AOA CME program has launched a new IT platform for recording and maintaining physician records as a result of the new Osteopathic Continuous Certification requirements. The new software will be able to meet the needs of tracking and recording CME credits at all levels including, credit for more than one specialty. Any CME submissions for 2013 will not be posted until mid-May 2013 due to the delay in recording new CME credits.
For more information or to view your current CME activity reports for the 2013-2015 CME cycle, please visit Osteopathic.org. For further questions, please call Patti Stubenberg @ 423-869-6819 or email patricia.stubenberg@LMUnet.edu.
