Happy Holidays from the AOAO CME Committee
By Dennis Blackburn, DO, FAOAO
CME Committee Chair
I hope you all have had a great year. The Annual Meeting at The Broadmoor was a success. To everyone who attended-thank you! And A big Thank You to all of our sponsors as well.
I wanted to update AOAO members about what is going on with the AOAO CME Committee and what we have been doing for you. As you all know, the CME cycle is ending in December, and a new cycle will start in January. For those of you who don’t know, remember, or just forgot, you will need to be compliant with your OCC requirements.
What? Just go to this YouTube video that some of the CME Committee members put together in order to help you understand what is needed.
We also have been working on Lecture Relevancy. Through the comments on the post meeting surveys, we have been listening to our members and trying to bring you relevant educational material while maintaining our osteopathic distinctiveness.
As all have heard, the entirety of medical education training in the United States is being transitioned to the ACGME, so it is important to try to stand out as being relevant. In order to strengthen our CME offerings, we have been making our meeting lectures available online through the AOAO website. We are also looking into the possibility of offering online CME, to assist in the self-assessment needs of the OCC and provide additional CME credit.
What’s coming in the future? I am glad you asked!
