This tutorial teaches how to add an affiliation for Enduring Materials. When you add an affiliation, you’re simply adding the hospital that you’re connected with inside the Hospital Affiliation section of your account on our website. This is because your hospital has paid to give you “free” access to our enduring materials post-test. However, you can only get access if you add the affiliation to your account. Instead of paying $25, you won’t be asked to make a payment.
Note: First, create an account on our OSU CCME website before starting the tutorial.
Let’s get started with the tutorial.
Click on the orange”My Account” tab at the top right of your screen
Click on the Hospital Affiliations button.
At the Drop-down Menu select your hospital name or the name you’re using for your affiliation.
Once you choose your Hospital Affiliation, Waiting will appear in the Status column. The Waiting status will appear until your affiliation is approved by the Administrator. If you attempt to take a post-test in the Waiting status, you’ll see a web page dialog to make a payment. Please wait until you are approved.
When your account gets approved, Approved will appear in the Status column.
You will also receive an e-mail, similar to the e-mail above, once your account is approved.

Here’s a guide to help you understand what Hospital Site Administrators need to do for Maintenance of Certification (MOC). One of the most important items is ensuring that attendees are signing in before your CME Webcast sessions and indicating if they they would like CME, MOC, or both during the group viewing. If physicians would like MOC, they must take the pre-test on our website (https://ccme.osu.edu/) before coming to the webcast group viewing.
Here’s what the time sheet should look like. Make sure it has a checkbox or something similar for selecting MOC. If attendees want MOC, they must select the checkbox or indicate “Yes”. This is important because if they select that they want MOC, you will not assign them CME for attending the webcast.
For each attendee that indicates that they would like MOC on the time sheet, you’ll need to navigate to the Admin Section for the webcast to indicate their intent, by selecting the MOC checkbox for the webcast.
Here’s how to do this.
Log into your account and click the Admin Section button. Once in the Admin Section, click the Webcasts button.
Click the Select button to choose a webcast.
Notice that there is an MOC checkbox on the screen next to the name of the physician.
Click the checkbox for each individual that indicated that they want MOC.
Also, for any person that wants MOC, you cannot assign that person a CME credit. This is because with MOC there is a self assessment element to the educational process, and a pre-test and post-test must be completed to earn the MOC point.
The only way individuals can get MOC is by completing the pre-test before viewing the webcast, and then by passing the post-test after the webcast. If the user takes the pre-test and passes the post-test, a CME credit and an MOC point will be added to their on-line account.
