Continuing Education at PCOM
A wide spectrum of educational activities and instructional methods are utilized during
our in-person and online programs, drawing upon the rich and diverse educational expertise
of our presenters.
We strive towards developing educational initiatives that take into account principles
of adult learning and we strongly promote the development of initiatives that include
interactive, case- and problem-based educational delivery models.
Face-to-Face CME Programs
Our face-to-face CME program are live CE/CME activities where learners participate
in person. Examples include annual meetings, conferences and seminars. For events
with multiple sessions, such as annual meetings, accredited providers report one activity
and calculate the hours of instruction by totaling the hours of all educational sessions
offered for CE/CME credit. The AOA allows 1A-Credit to be offered for all face-to-face
programs that meet category 1 quality guidelines and faculty requirements, and which
are sponsored by AOA-accredited category 1 CME sponsors.
Our online courses consist of live webinars and on-demand programs which offer participants
the convenience of distance learning with the same expert instruction as provided
in our live courses.
Live webinars are online programs available at certain times and dates. Live webinars are
only available in real-time, just as if the course were held in an auditorium. Once
the event has taken place, learners may no longer participate in that activity unless
it is again presented at a later date. The AOA allows up to 15 hours of Category 1A-Credit
to be offered for live webinars.
Our on-demand programs are online educational programs that can be accessed at any
time. You determine when to complete the activity. Examples include online interactive
educational modules, recorded presentations and podcasts. Availability for on-demand programs can
vary. Check our Online Learning Center for current listings. The AOA allows 1B-Credit to be offered for on-demand programs.
More information regarding AOA Accreditation Criteria for CME is available on the American Osteopathic Association website.
