OSDCME is a free educational Web site for the comprehensive ophthalmologist and optometrist communities. There is no cost for you to access OSDCME or to obtain CME credits. The Web site does not include any product advertisements.

OSDCME is constantly updated and expanded to include the most accurate and relevant information available for comprehensive ophthalmologists and optometrists. We have recruited leading experts to serve as faculty contributors. Before any new material is posted on OSDCME, it is thoroughly reviewed by our Medical Director.

For each CME activity (article, lecture, videos or clinical cases) you select, you will be taken directly to the CME Information, which will tell you about the activity and authors, what you should learn at the end and how many credits the activity is worth.

Upon reviewing the CME information, you will be directed to continue on to the pretest. Upon completing the pretest, you will be directed to continue on to the activity, where you will be able to read, watch or listen to the activity.

Upon your completion of the activity, you will be directed to continue to the posttest. If a passing score is achieved on the posttest, you will be able to continue on to an evaluation of the activity and finally, you will be directed to continue on to your certificate.

Your certificate will also appear in your “My CME” section of the site for future referral.

International Users: If your country recognizes United States-approved CME as valid credits in medical education, then the credits you can earn on OSDCME can be applied to your country's continuing medical education program.
