Welcome to the on-line, continuing medical education site at Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine. Extensive use of interactive simulations, animations, video, audio, and color graphics, help you to review, master, and retain basic anatomical and biomechanical knowledge necessary for the diagnosis of musculoskeletal dysfunction. Our objectives go beyond just providing you with a product that will enable you to obtain CME credits, we also want to immerse you in a unique learning experience that will expand your understanding of, and ability to use, manual medicine in your practice.

You have free access to all the didactic content, paying only $22/CME credit when you are ready to take the graded exam. On-line registration is handled by MSU over a secure Web site. Help and Support is provided by MSU by calling 517-432-6200 or 844-678-6200. Michigan State University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. MSUCOM will award AOA approved, Category 1-B CME credits with a passing grade of 70%.

The following educational modules are offered:

Quick Quiz self-testing exercises, interspersed throughout the modules, provide formative evaluation to ensure that the goals of the instruction are being achieved. These exercises give instant feedback to the learner and provide remedial instruction, when necessary, in response to the learner's answers to specific questions. Use of these self-evaluating exercises also enables the learner to accurately gauge their level of understanding.

Once you feel that you have mastered the content, you can take an examination. Examination questions are randomly selected from a large pool of questions and then randomly ordered on an examination "sheet", ensuring that each user gets a unique set of questions. The examination sheet can be saved and recalled any number of times. Once you are satisfied with your answers, you submit the examination sheet for grading. The examination sheet is electronically graded and you will receive immediate feedback related to your performance. You will need to score at least 70% on the exam to unlock your certificate of completion. If you fail to pass the exam, you will have to repay to repeat the course.

If you have questions, you can contact Dr. Hallgren by email.
