Proposed Changes: Postdoctoral Training

Section X: AOA Program Accreditation during Transition to Single GME Accreditation System

The proposed changes to Section X: AOA Program Accreditation during Transition to Single GME Accreditation System could impact the eligibility of some training programs to participate in the 2019 AOA Match and the ability to accept new trainees. Feedback from specialty colleges, OPTIs, DMEs, and program directors is very important to the AOA.

Please email all comments for proposed changes to Section X to postdoc@osteopathic.org.
