Good News! Previous AOA policy dictated that no more than 25 of the 50 required specialty credits per three year cycle may come from osteopathic foundation seminars like our Southwestern Conference on Medicine. This specialty credit cap has been removed for 2015 which is also the last year of the cycle! 

Anticipated AOA Specialty Credits Include: 30 Family Medicine, 13 Internal Medicine, 4 OMT/OMM, 4 Emergency Medicine, 2 Orthopedic Surgery, 3 Neurology/Psychiatry, 3 Surgery, 2 Sports Medicine, 1 Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, 1 OB/GYN, 1 Dermatology, and 1 Otolaryngology.

Tucson Osteopathic Medical Foundation is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The American Osteopathic Association designates this continuing medical education activity for a maximum of 30 AOA Category 1A Credits. Two AOA Category 1A Credits may be earned by DOs who complete an online post-conference outcomes assessment. In order to obtain any credit, all participants must complete the Conference evaluation and CME attestation at the end of the meeting. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Cleveland Clinic and Tucson Osteopathic Medical Foundation. The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education designates this live activity for a maximum of 30.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This program has been reviewed and is approved for a maximum of 30.00 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME credit by the Physician Assistant Review Panel. Physician assistants should claim only those hours actually spent participating in the CME activity. This program was planned in accordance with AAPA's CME Standards for Live Programs and for Commercial Support of Live Programs.
