The first study module for 2015 should be avaiable online by next week. With this posting, all of the 2014 modules will no longer be available for OCC completion. The presentation will still be available for viewing in the "Archives" section. Again, I wish to point out that the AOBA is offering a $1,000 honorarium for each study module completed. If anyone is interested please contact Jessica for further information.
Secondly, please note that the application deadline for all the March examinations is February 15, 2015. No application will be considered after this time.
Finally, as of January 1, 2015, I have put in my resignation as AOBA Chairman for both personal and professional reasons, to be effective after the March AOBA meeting. I have enjoyed my time and hope that the AOBA continues to move forward in seeking new ways and opportunities to make the certification process more physician friendly. Until the March AOBA meeting, Dr. Bradley Wargo will serve as Interim Chairman.
