WVSOM Continuing Medical Education

Accredited by the American Osteopathic Association as an approved sponsor of AOA-CME category 1-A programs, WVSOM develops continuing medical education programs on a regular basis.

CME programs bring seminars, speakers, medical literature and "hands-on" training to WVSOM graduates and other osteopathic physicians.

Every three years, all licensed osteopathic physicians are required by the AOA to complete at least 120 hours of approved continuing medical education study. Therefore, WVSOM-sponsored CME programs are an important service to graduates. Two major conferences - the Mid-Winter Update and the Summer Seminar - are sponsored annually.

Additional programs are offered throughout the year.

The AOA CME three year cycle is January 2010 through December 2012.
