On-Site Reviews for Postdoctoral Training Programs and Institutions

Only the AOA has the authority to call for the site review of an AOA-approved postdoctoral training program. Official site review notifications are distributed to all appropriate parties by the AOA Division of Postdoctoral Training. The AOA will provide an anticipated site review date in the notifications. It is imperative that Program Directors and/or DMEs consult with their OPTI representative when preparing for a site review.
