The Feminine Touch

Have you seen "The Feminine Touch," a new PBS documentary that tells the story of women in Osteopathic Medicine?  It is inspired by the book, "The Feminine Touch: Women in Osteopathic Medicine" by Thomas Quinn, DO.  The documentary was aired on April 20, 2017 in the Tampa, Florida, area and is being picked up by other PBS affiliates.  It's also available for free online viewing at http://www.pbs.org/video/3000214906.

2017 POFPS CME Symposium - Wrap-up

Thank you for joining us at the POFPS 42nd Annual CME Symposium!

Over the course of three days, over 400 physicians came together to celebrate osteopathic family medicine in Pennsylvania.  While getting our fill of chocolate for the year, we also saw old friends and made new ones, we were energized by our enthusiastic osteopathic medical students, we received cutting edge updates and demonstrations from top notch speakers, and we networked with our exhibitors and conference sponsors.


CME Reminders

CME credits for attendees of the 2017 POFPS CME Symposium are currently being processed by the POMA Central Office.  POMA will record the credits earned in the membership database and forward them to the AOA.  CME certificates will be emailed to attendees in late August.

Attendees are reminded to return their CME attestation form to the Central Office immediately, if they have not already done so.  This form was provided to physicians in their registration packet at the time of the program; it is also available by clicking here.  If a reporting form is not completed and returned, your credits will not be forward to the AOA.

If you have any questions, please call (717) 939-9318, ext 18.


Updated Speaker Materials Now Available

Speaker materials for educational sessions at the 2017 POFPS CME Symposium are available on the POFPS CME Symposium page of the POMA website.  They will remain online until December 2017.
