Here's how to obtain credit for CME not automatically reported to the AOA.
Category 1-A and 1-B credit is osteopathic and does not need to be self-reported to the AOA. Category 1 CME event organizers will report your CME credits to the AOA within 90 days of the program.
Acceptable Category 2 credit includes AMA-accredited or AAFP-approved credits. These credits are typically listed on the certificate of attendance as being:
AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
Accredited by: Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) or
Approved by: American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)
Use the forms below to report CME activities not automatically reported by AOA-accredited CME sponsors and for special CME requests. You can report CME by emailing attachments to MemberService@osteopathic.org or faxing forms to (312) 202-8202. It takes at least two weeks for submitted credits to post to your CME Activity Report. For more info, check out our FAQ or contact us at (888) 62-MYAOA or (888) 626-9262 or MemberService@osteopathic.org.
Include your name and AOA number with all submissions.
Submit copies of the certificates of attendance. Do not send the originals.
Include your contact email or phone number in case there are questions.
Please do not submit the same certificates of attendance multiple times, as this slows the posting process.
