Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM)

Application for Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credit and Activity Planning
Applications for all CME events must be submitted to the Office of CME at LMU-DCOM at least 90 days
prior to the event start date. Applications will be reviewed by the LMU-DCOM CME Advisory Committee
and notification to applicant will be made within 10 business days after application submission. After
review by the CME Advisory Committee requests will be forwarded to AOA for review and approval of
CME credit. Regularly scheduled medical education activities such as grand rounds require a 30-day
The purpose of the activity planning application is to ensure the CME programs are consistent with
the AOA Council on Continuing Medical Education (CCME) criteria. The information in the application
will provide evidence for certification of credit, help LMU-DCOM prepare quality, evidence-based,
educational programs, and ensure the educational needs of the participants are met. The focus on
CME should be from a Performance Improvement/Outcomes Perspective with learning objectives
structured to measure knowledge, competence, performance, and/or patient care outcomes and with an
opportunity to re-assess learning in the practice setting. We can provide consultation and support to help
ensure your educational activity/event meets the highest level of AOA compliance.
