West Virginia CME Requirements

Accredited by the American Osteopathic Association as an approved sponsor of AOA-CME category 1-A programs, WVOMA develops continuing medical education programs to meet our members’ needs and interests.

All holders of licenses to practice as osteopathic physicians and surgeons in WV shall renew their licenses biennially on or before July 1.  As a prerequisite to renewal of a license issued by the WV Board of Osteopathic Medicine, each licensee shall furnish biennially to the board satisfactory evidence of having completed thirty-two hours of AOA approved continuing education, with fifty percent of the required thirty-two hours being in AOA Category 1.  WV State law requires that three of these hours must be on the subject of drug diversion training and best practices for prescribing of controlled substances in a course that is approved by the licensing board.

Every three years, all licensed osteopathic physicians are required by the AOA to complete at least 120 hours of approved continuing medical education study,  with at least 30 credits in Category 1-A. The remaining 90 credits may be obtained in CME designated as Category 1-A, 1-B, 2-A, or 2-B. Osteopathic board-certified physicians must earn at least 50 of their total 120 credit hours in their primary specialty.

The current AOA CME three year cycle ends December 2012.
