CME with the OCA

The Osteopathic Cranial Academy (OCA) typically 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. During the pandemic we have also developed a hybrid partially virtual introductory course. 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, SCCO, REB Institute, 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.
Please ensure your eligibility prior to registering for any course.
