AOA Addiction Medicine Subspecialty Certification Information

August 04, 2017 3:02 PM | Anonymous

The AOA has approved as eligible for AOA Addiction Medicine subspecialty certification those osteopathic physicians who hold the following credentials:

  1. Active AOA primary certification, current in OCC, if applicable; and
  2. Active American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM) certification, current in ABAM MOC.

Applicants who meet these two requirements will be granted subspecialty/CAQ certification in Addiction Medicine, with a requirement that Diplomates maintain their certification through the AOA's Addiction Medicine Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC) process.  

Once certified, examination will occur at the appropriate interval based on the date of initial certification or re-certification by ABAM. Other OCC requirements will apply as adopted by the Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists (BOS). Please note that, at this time, the OCC process is under review by the BOS and AOA Board of Trustees (BOT). Details will be forthcoming.

The application fee is $295.
