Program Information:
The purpose of this seminar is to provide the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) accredited programs that address the clinical practice needs of osteopathic physicians.  Sessions are offered to continually assess issues, developments, advances and deficiencies in current medical practice, and address identified needs through relevant comprehensive programs designed for general statewide physician audiences of all specialties.  You will also have the opportunity to select qualified faculty in accordance with AOA accreditation requirements, develop innovative learning forums, and endeavor to provide AOA category 1-A programs.

Osteopathic students, residents, and fellows are required to register before January 10th  to attend the event at no cost.  Registrations received after will be charged a $100 registration fee.

Virtual Event & Online access:
We are partnering with Mills James, digital event specialists, to provide technical support and to our virtual, interactive conference.  We know your email is full, so we will send the link to access this seminar the week of the event.  When registering, please be sure to use an email address you will have access to on Saturday OR forward the email received to an email you can access the day of the event.
 
CME Credits:
The Ohio Osteopathic Foundation (OOF) is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA)  to provide osteopathic continuing medical education (CME) for physicians.  The OOF designated this program for a maximum of 24 hours of AOA Category 1-A credits and will report CME and specialty credits in accordance with the extent of the physicians’ participation in this activity.

Additional CME credit is available if you choose to complete a post-event survey of this program, which will be emailed to you approximately 30 days after the conclusion of the program.

CME Verification:
Simple!  Participants must login to the virtual conference and complete the online CME Verification form for presentations you participated. Credit will be given only to physicians who complete the online attestation form indicating the total number of hours attended. No credits will be given to those physicians who fail to complete their online CME Verification Form. Credit will be submitted directly to the AOA by the Ohio Osteopathic Foundation. This program may qualify for a similar number of credit hours for members of the AMA.

Our program moderator will facilitate this year’s event virtually online with pre-recorded presentations from leaders within the field including LIVE interactive Q&A sessions with each speaker and presentation and audience following each presentation.  Although the event is being held virtually, we expect an increase in participants this year as it will allow greater participation from across the state and county to participate safely from home during these unpredictable times as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.  It is anticipated approximately 350-400 physicians from across Ohio and surrounding states will attend the three-day conference. Overall, this medical education program will offer an anticipated 24 AOA Category 1-A CME credits, as well as the opportunity for physicians to virtually, meet with representatives from companies whose products and services enhance their practice of medicine. 

NOTE: This event will NOT be recorded for future play
