Genesys receives CME full accreditation

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys Regional Medical Center received a full three-year Continuing Medical Education (CME) accreditation from the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) for CME Category 1 education. Category 1 is a licensing requirement for osteopathic physicians.
Genesys scored 100 points - the highest possible score. Only 13 hospitals in Michigan and 160 in the entire country are accredited to provide Category 1 continuing medical education, the highest level of education for osteopathic physicians.

In addition to educational training labs and courses conducted throughout the year by the Genesys Learning Institute, Genesys offers one-day monthly seminars that meet the AOA's Category 1 criteria. Physicians across the state will travel to Genesys for these monthly seminars presented by nationally known physicians.

Accreditation by the AOA ensures physicians are obtaining the best educational opportunities possible and the highest level of training available.

The AOA Board establishes accreditation policies for osteopathic CME sponsors, monitors CME programs and determines Category 1 accreditation status.
