About the Course/Target Audience

AOCOPM sponsors a Basic Course in Occupational & Environmental Medicine designed to provide a basic understanding and expertise in the areas of occupational & environmental medicine while preparing participants to take a written examination qualifying for an AOA-approved, Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ). For those participants who do not hold a primary AOA board certification, a certificate of course completion is offered. Thus, our primary audience is AOA-certified physicians working to obtain the CAQ; but the course also offers value to other MDs, DOs, PAs, and Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioners.

The Course is presented in three (3) parts, which do not need to be taken in sequence. For the convenience of the faculty and participants, one part is normally provided at one or both of the two conferences presented by the AOCOPM each year (almost always at the Midyear in March or April, and sometimes offered at the Annual conference held in conjunction with OMED in September or October). The parts are also offered at AOA Online Learning.*  Each part is a full day didactic program and requires a separate registration with the AOCOPM. 

*NOTE: IF YOU ARE AN AOA-CERTIFIED PHYSICIAN TAKING THIS COURSE TO BE ELIGIBLE TO SIT FOR THE CERTIFICATE OF ADDED QUALIFICATION (CAQ) EXAM, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT YOUR COURSE WORK IS SPREAD OVER A ONE-YEAR PERIOD. PLEASE WAIT AND BEGIN YOUR SECOND PART SIX MONTHS AFTER COMPLETING YOUR FIRST PART AND TAKE YOUR FINAL PART AT THE END OF YOUR YEAR OF STUDY. The parts can be taken in any order but must be spread out in six-month or longer intervals.   MORE INFORMATION
