Six Saturdays May 16 – June 27 ** Gain Valuable 1-A CME Credit
The Cranial Academy has put together an outstanding program of leading experts for this first-time Virtual Conference, which is being held in place of the Annual Conference canceled due to COVID-19. Sessions run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern (8 a.m. to noon Pacific) each week and are presented livestream over Zoom. Each session provides 4 hours of 1-A CME credit; the AOA now allows up to 15 hours of Category 1-A CME. We hope you will join in each week … and take advantage of the special package discount for sessions 2-5!
Update as of June 21, 2020:
Videos for Weeks 1, 2, and 3 are posted for those who registered and paid. See your email for the private link to the videos and also link for any handouts that the speakers may have shared (must be logged in to your OCA account to view). These videos will remain available for viewing until July 31.
Videos for Weeks 4 & 5 will be posted by Friday — there has been a slight delay due to a death in the family of our Executive Director; we appreciate your patience. Videos for Weeks 4, 5, and 6 will remain available for viewing until Aug 31.
The Osteopathic Cranial Academy (OCA) holds two 5-day introductory courses each year beginning the 2nd Saturday of February and June. The February intro course is followed by an advanced course and the June intro course is followed by our Annual Conference. All attendees must be eligible for membership in the OCA
Successful completion of an approved Introductory Course sponsored by the OCA, Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation (SCTF), or Osteopathy’s Promise to Children (OPC) is required for membership and attendance at our Annual Conference. Students may also qualify for membership after an approved COM course. Some International Introductory Courses are also approved for membership, such as those sponsored by International SCTF chapters and AMOC.
Intermediate core courses (e.g., The Next Step, The Cranial Base, Pediatrics) are typically held in February or September each year on a rotating basis. Other advanced courses may be held in April and November each year. Prerequisites include at minimum 1-2 approved introductory courses and sometimes additional requirements, depending on the course.
