GME update

Nearly 99% of 2018 GME-seeking DO graduates successfully placed in training programs, AACOM reports

Nearly all of this year’s graduates from DO schools who pursued GME training have been granted positions and will start the next chapter of their careers in July.

The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) reports that 98.76% of graduating fourth-year DO students who sought graduate medical education were successfully placed in training programs. The figure reflects data collected from every college of osteopathic medicine as of April 12.

Of graduating MDs who entered the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) this year, 94.3% matched.

A record high number of DOs joined their MD counterparts in matching via NRMP this year, as the profession moves toward a single system of GME accreditation. The AOA will hold its hold its final match next year, as The DO previously reported.
