The American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Board of Trustees has mandated that all osteopathic specialty certifying boards implement Osteopathic Continuous Certification by January 1, 2013. This mandate has caused a number of changes to be made to the AOA specialty board certification processes. The authors provide an overview of changes that will affect AOA board–certified osteopathic physicians, including recertification processes, procedures for nonclinical physicians, requirements for non–time-dated and dual certification, and continuing medical education rules. Rates of osteopathic specialty board certification and recertification for 2011 are also reported.
