Michigan Osteopathic Association CME Information

To better serve our members, the MOA has developed an online platform for CME sessions. The MOA Learning Center utilizes the CE21 Learning Management System to deliver CME sessions and document credits with evaluations. The MOA will offer both live events and on demand sessions using the same great speakers who would normally be presenters at in-person conventions. Once you have used the Learning Center you will have a profile established that will allow you to access available sessions, view speaker profiles and track CME credits gained through the system. 

Reminder: Your account with the MOA website (www.domoa.org) is separate from the Learning Center. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
