CME Providers Update

Educators know there's always something new to learn! Oklahoma continuing medical education providers came to OSMA headquarters to learn new CME approaches to count toward Maintenance of Certification and meet commendation criteria. Timothy Holder, M.D., OSMA Accreditation Review Committee chair, led the conference with presentations by Marcia Martin from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). Awards were presented to OSMA-accredited CME providers from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse and St. Anthony Hospital for outstanding commitment to CME improvement. Through ACCME, OSMA is the state's highest-rated CME source and enjoys being a resource to Oklahoma CME providers.

Timothy Holder, MD, and Marcia Martin (center) are joined by other CME providers attending the OSMA CME training update.  


In an effort to provide OSMA members ready access to quality Continuing Medical Education CME programs, the OSMA Council on Medical Education accredits Oklahoma institutions/organizations, (i.e., hospitals, medical societies, specialty societies), to designate Category 1 CME hours AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. These institutions/organizations must follow the Essentials and Standards set down by the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). The OSMA Council on Medical Education has the responsibility to see that the Essental Areas are met.

However, some specialty societies and hospital medical staffs require a certain number of CME Category 1 hours on a yearly basis for membership.
