This online program offers physicians the flexibility to attend a live online event and/or access it on-demand just hours after each lecture concludes. In addition, the entire event may be completed on-demand at a later date and time that fits your schedule.

Speakers record their lectures in advance and then are live on the platform on the day of the event to answer questions. A whopping 98% of attendees say they would recommend The VOC to a colleague!

Ohio Osteopathic Symposium

The Ohio Osteopathic Symposium is the state's premier continuing medical education event for osteopathic physicians, attracting more than 500 DOs from Ohio and the midwest. The Symposium, held annually in April, has something for everyone, including program blocks that qualify for specialty credit in areas like pediatrics, internal medicine, emergency medicine, and family medicine. The luxurious Columbus Hilton Hotel and adjacent Easton Town Center make the Symposium an ideal location to spend an enjoyable weekend with your spouse and family exploring a variety of restaurants, entertainment, and shopping venues after the educational sessions.

On average, the Symposium program offers 30 hours of AOA Category 1-A CME credit, with a variety of workshops and lectures providing the most up to date information on topics every physician should know. Attendees also have an opportunity to get updates from state and national leaders, participate in the OOA annual business meeting, or spend time networking with friends and colleagues from across the state.

A showcase for research, the Symposium is host to a regional scientific poster contest with more than 75 entries from Ohio and surrounding states.
