CME CME for Dormant Specialty Boards

CME for Dormant Specialty Boards

2019-21 CME GUIDE

Requirements for DOs who hold time-limited certificates from dormant specialty boards

Learn how much overall and specialty-specific CME you need to earn beginning in the 2019-2021 CME cycle.

Due to the small numbers of physicians training in the specialties, the following specialty certifying boards are in dormant status, or will become so later in 2019:

  • American Osteopathic Board of Nuclear Medicine (AOBNM)
  • American Osteopathic Board of Proctology (AOBPr)

In addition, the following subspecialties under the American Ostepoathic Board of Pediatrics (AOBP) are in dormant status:

  • Adolescent Medicine
  • Pediatric Endocrinology
  • Pediatric Pulmonology

Physicians who hold active time-limited certificates in these specialties will have the following CME requirements beginning in the 2019-2021 CME cycle:

  • 120 total CME credits per 3-year AOA CME cycle
  • Of the total 120 credits required, a minimum of 25% must be specialty-specific*

* Specialty-specific CME will be verified by the diplomate via a self-attestation form, subject to random audit by the AOA.

Physicians who need a copy of the self-attestation form should contact certification@osteopathic.org to request a copy.
