The authors explain Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC) as mandated by the American Osteopathic Association Board of Trustees. Implemented on January 1, 2013, OCC is the process wherein osteopathic physicians certify their training and expertise in their chosen specialty and maintain the standard of excellence begun with the initial American Osteopathic Association certification. In contrast to one-time examinations, OCC is intended to be an ongoing, lifelong process for osteopathic physicians.
