Welcome to the information page for the AutismOne 2017 International Continuing Medical Education Program, a joint collaborative initiative of AutismOne, the American Association of Integrative Medicine, and the American Academy of Pediatric Osteopathy. This year’s innovative educational program offers multiple days of learning, with 23.75 credit hours available for doctors, nurses,* and healthcare professionals* (AMA accepted credits). 

IMPORTANT:  For CME credit, please attend the Thursday CME lecture day, the Friday CME think tank day (licensed healthcare professionals only), and the Saturday CME think tank half-day (licensed healthcare professionals only). The Saturday afternoon endocannabinoid medicine CME credit program is optional (additional 3 credits), but Th/Fri/Sat a.m. is a prerequisite for this.

We have kept the prices the same as 2016, even with the additional credit hours offered.

This one-of-a-kind educational program aims to educate healthcare professionals in state-of-the-art approaches to integrative pediatrics and current science as it applies to autism spectrum disorders. This includes a review of evidence-based approaches and examination of cutting-edge and innovative therapies currently being researched. This educational offering will create and enhance and a knowledge base in the area of integrative pediatrics for the healthcare professional and, thereby, increase their understanding and knowledge of integrative pediatrics. Knowledge of integrative approaches to the pediatric population will increase a practitioner's ability to understand current complementary therapies the patient is using as well as to augment the practitioner’s ability to advise or implement integrative approaches that will benefit patients.
