Administration of Medication (AOM) is a District of Columbia Department of Health approved program to provide training to non-medical school staff to enable them to administer medication to students. The course consists of training incorporating video, lecture, at-home assignments, hands-on practice, quizzes, practicum, and a final exam. Registrants are sent online course information approximately 2 weeks prior to the class date.  Completion of the online pre-coursework is required in order to participate in the class.  Information received from the instructor needs to be reviewed carefully in order to comply with all requirements of the class.
