CME with the OCA

The Osteopathic Cranial Academy (OCA) typically holds 2-3 Introductory Courses each year.  Some are 5 days of in-person lectures and labs.   During the pandemic we also developed a hybrid partially-virtual Introductory Course, with online lectures spread over several weeks and 3-days in person for lab and hands-on experiences. All attendees must be eligible for membership in the OCA.
Successful completion of an approved Introductory Course from the OCA, the 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 a COM course if it was approved in advance as equivalent by the OCA. 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 the spring and/or fall each year on a rotating basis.  Other advanced courses may be held in spring or fall as well. 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.
