Here's what our attendees had to say about their experience:

“It was a great way to get AOA 1-A CME

Pertinent information which was presented expertly.

high quality programming, and diverse topics

excellent integration of Osteopathic principles in everyday practice

“Up to date info with excellent practical applications.

“awesome speakers

“The ease of accessibility, timing & pausing, reviewing, watching comfortably made it easier to learn

Website was VERY easy to use

A great platform and great presentations! All in the comfort of my own home. I loved it!

“Can only see this getting “VIRTUALLY” better

“I am impressed, no, awed at how well the virtual conference went and deeply thank all those who were involved in pulling this off so successfully.

First virtual conference, well done. The platform was very helpful, appreciated the CME utility, but most appreciated the forum opportunity - and because it was asynchronous I much appreciated getting answers and feedback almost directly after publishing a note/inquiry.

MOA’s 109th Annual Convention:
Exploring New Frontiers in Healthcare!


The Maine Osteopathic Association Program Committee made the decision to move forward with a “Virtual Convention” in lieu of our June 2020 in-person live CME event. We know that the global pandemic of COVID-19 has disrupted routines and lives in so many ways. In transitioning to a virtual platform, the MOA has strived to maintain the integrity of our educational programming and keep the format as familiar as possible for our loyal members and attendees. We offered three days of virtual CME sessions June 5-7th, 2020 and now we are offering YOU the opportunity to get access to all of the educational sessions we offered that weekend on your own time and schedule.

In this fully on-demand convention option, you have access to up to 18.25 AOA Category 1A Credits and have 60 days to view the sessions. COVID-19 topics, dermatology, palliative care, physician burnout, sports medicine, mental health and well-bring, financial well being-- so much to choose from here at a great value!
