All physicians who are board certified by the AOBNMM with time-dated certificates will be required to be enrolled in Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC) effective January 1, 2013. Requirements for OCC may be pro-rated based on re-certification anniversary date.
Starting January 1, 2013, all physicians receiving first-time board certification from the AOBNMM will automatically be enrolled in OCC at the time the certificate is awarded.
Non-time dated diplomates are strongly encouraged to participate in the OCC process. At this time, participation in all components is not required for non-time dated certificates.
