What is the VOC?
The VOC is a national osteopathic virtual continuing medical education (CME) program started in 2021 by the Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons and the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of Oregon. Offering 48 credits of both AOA and AMA accredited CME in a flexible format, the VOC has quickly gained popularity and recognition around the country with over 2,000 physicians from throughout the United States attending. The audience includes both DOs and MDs from a wide variety of specialties.
How does the VOC work?
The VOC program is entirely virtual with all educational sessions pre-recorded and available on our virtual learning platform. The official “live” VOC occurs over a three-day period in February. During this time, learners and faculty can interact via chat for an “almost live” educational experience. Faculty can interact during their presentation by asking probing questions and dialoguing with learners. Following the live programming, all sessions are available to learners for a substantial time for completion on-demand. During this time, learners can email their questions to faculty, but they can also view the chatted interactions from the live programming.
