What Needs to Be Done?

Starting a new OGME program requires planning and coordinating many different tasks. Using one of the following sample program development checklists can help guide you through the process of identifying these activities, allocating responsibility and developing a timeline for completing each step in the process. A sample process flow chart provides additional guidance on what needs to be done when and how the pieces fit together.

Faculty development programs help ensure that all physicians who teach osteopathic interns, residents and students understand osteopathic medical education and have the resources they need to provide high quality education and training.  View Student/Patient Clinical Worksheet
