Component 2: Lifelong Learning/Continuing Medical Education


Component 2 of the Osteopathic Continuous Certification process requires recertifying physicians to pursue lifelong learning through continuing medical education.

To complete component 2 requirements in the primary specialty of obstetrics and gynecology, diplomates must complete 120 CME credits each three-year AOA CME cycle. Fifty of these credits must be in the primary specialty. You can view your status for all OCC components, including component 2, by logging in to the AOA Physician Portal.

For subspecialty certification, 15 of the CME credits must be in the diplomate’s subspecialty.  Subspecialty credits also count towards the total 50-credit specialty CME requirement.
