Component 4: Practice Performance Assessment & Improvement


Under Component 4 of the OCC process for the specialty of Emergency Medicine, physicians must complete two online practice performance improvement modules during each 10-year OCC cycle. Here’s how the modules work:

  • Diplomates must complete the Initial Practice Assessment module during years 1-5 of their own OCC cycle. No charts will be submitted.
  • If diplomates do not meet the standards of the Initial Practice Assessment module, they must complete the Post-Intervention Practice Assessment below.
  • Additionally, physicians can visit the AOA Physician Portal to attest. Please note you will be required to sign into the site using your Osteopathic.org login information.
