The Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide CME for physicians. The OSMA designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1TM Credit, and is providing CME at no cost. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The estimated time of completion is 1.0 hour for each module.
Funding for these courses has been made possible through the generous support of the Academy of Medicine Education Foundation (AMEF) and Ohio Hospital Association (OHA). OPHP staff have been instrumental in coordinating these courses and making them available online for physicians.
