The New Certification Maintenance Program

CM Presentation

The Board spoke about the changes to its Certification Maintenance program at the 2019 AAOMS Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. If you didn't have a chance to see the presentation, we encourage you to review the slides to stay knowledgable about how these changes are affecting your certification. 

ABOMS will be hosting a webinar on November 13, 2019 at 6pm CST to present about this topic once more before the changes go live in January 2020. Register through AAOMS to attend the course.
