Flexibility:
The VOC is all about flexibility! You have the flexibility to choose:

  • When to attend: Attend live virtually February 17-19, 2023, or attend on-demand anytime between February 17 and June 30, 2023.
  • Where to attend: You can view from anywhere you have internet access – at your home, at the lake, at a ski resort, at your office, or all of the above.
  • What to attend: Pick and choose from any of the 48 presentations in the VOC to customize the program for what you need.
  • How much to attend: You select the credit category that works for you…but when you see more you want to attend (and we know you will!) you can increase it to another level, and we will honor the increased credit discount.
  • Credit type: The VOC presentations are accredited for both AOA and AMA category 1 credit. It will work for you, no matter how you are boarded.

Live Virtual Conference:
The live virtual conference will be held February 17-19, 2023. The live virtual conference allows attendees an opportunity to interact with faculty in real time during the presentation. There are three educational tracks for the conference, including Family Medicine (24 Credits), Internal Medicine (16 Credits), and Emergency Medicine (8 Credits). You will be able to attend a maximum of 24 credits during the virtual live dates.

On-Demand:
All 48 presentations will be available for on-demand viewing within two hours after each live presentation concludes. This allows you the opportunity to complete any presentation you may have missed during the live portion and view any of the other presentations on your schedule. To provide attendees the maximum flexibility, the conference will remain available for completion on-demand through midnight on Friday, June 30, 2023.

Credit Options:
Registrants can choose from various credit level categories for this virtual conference in 8-credit increments. You can attend up to 24 credits from February 17 through 19 or earn up to a total of 48 credits on-demand. You choose which presentations to attend. If, after your initial purchase, you would like to increase to a higher credit level category, we will honor the discounted pricing. If you want to purchase additional credit in 8-credit increments, please call MAOPS at (573) 634-3415.

Faculty Interaction:  
Live conference attendees will be able to chat and interact with faculty and other attendees while the presentations are playing. The VOC faculty will pre-record their lectures so they will be able to answer questions in real time throughout the entire presentation. In the on-demand format, attendees will see all comments made during the live presentation and will be able to email questions to content experts. This offers you the maximum flexibility in what CME you take and when you take it.

Registration Deadline:
Registration for the VOC will end on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, at midnight. You will have until midnight, Thursday, June 30, 2023, to finish viewing presentations.
