As the osteopathic medical profession moves toward a single system of graduate medical education, educators are applying for osteopathic recognition, a designation available for residency programs that offer osteopathically focused training.
The Association of Osteopathic Directors and Medical Educators (AODME) wants to assist educators with the osteopathic recognition application process. With that goal in mind, on Nov. 17 at 4 p.m. ET, the group will offer a webinar titled: “Osteopathic Recognition: Understanding the Application and Common Pitfalls.” Facilitated by Tiffany Moss, executive director of osteopathic accreditation at the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, the hourlong presentation will review recent and proposed changes to the osteopathic recognition application and offer tips for avoiding common recognition citations.
“Our aim is to encourage programs making the transition under the single accreditation system to also attain osteopathic recognition accreditation, and to facilitate that process,” says AODME President Lynn Mark, DO. “That is the reason we have been providing webinars pertaining to the osteopathic recognition application process and osteopathic scholarly activities.”
