About CME

  • Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences is dually accredited to provide continuing medical education by both the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

    Our state of the art facilities allow us to incorporate a variety of learning formats into activities, including human-patient simulations, hands-on anatomy workshops and hands-on osteopathic manipulative treatment workshops.

    Content is designed to address standards for maintenance of licensure, maintenance of certification, or osteopathic continuous certification.

    Continuing Medical Education is defined as educational activities that serve to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance of physicians as they provide services for patients, the public or the greater health-care profession.

    CME credits can be earned a variety of ways. KCU provides several opportunities each year for osteopathic and allopathic medical doctors to complete CME credits. Learn more about the Department of Continuing Medical Education at KCU.
