CME Credits

The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. This program anticipates being approved for AOA Category 1-A CME credit pending approval by the AOA CCME. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

VCOM CME Policy

Evaluation data will be compiled and provided to the VCOM Assistant Dean of Faculty Development. Comments and suggestions regarding program content, location and other program specific details will be considered when planning future activities. Grievances regarding program administration and reporting of AOA CME credits will be handled on an individual basis by the Assistant Dean of Faculty Development, Adrienne Ables, at aables [at] carolinas.vcom.edu (). Participants with grievances that cannot be resolved by the Assistant Dean will be sent to VCOM administration and then to the AOA CCME.

What will this conference offer?

The Via Research Recognition day is a forum for health professionals and scientists at academic institutions, teaching hospitals and practice sites to present or benefit from new research innovations and programs intended to improve the health of all humans. By attending the sessions with the speakers, participants will have the opportunity to learn cutting edge information in the physiological bases of osteopathic manipulative therapy efficacy, new trends in physician-based research networks, and how to develop innovative research projects with high impact for human health. By attending the poster session, participants will also learn about the biomedical, clinical and educational research activities at VCOM and its partner institutions, and will have ample opportunity to identify new collaborative research opportunities.

Who should attend?

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, public health professionals, medical residents, health professions students and others interested in primary care issues and research.
