Rotations will be compared to the Traditional Rotating Internship or the AOA's OGME-1 specialty. Use this document to review the rotations:
If you have questions regarding meeting the rotational requirements, please contact the Division of Trainee Services at (312) 202-8276.
Applicants must participate in one of the following osteopathic medical activities:
A. Attend the AOA Annual Osteopathic Medical Conference and Exposition
B. Attend the annual meeting of the relevant osteopathic specialty college or AOA-affiliated divisional society
An applicant must attend one conference for the requirement of completing eight CME Category 1-A credit hours.
NOTE: Institutional osteopathic manipulative medicine sessions are not accepted as an educational activity.
When one of the above has been completed, verification must be sent from the program sponsor directly to the AOA.
