The lecture aims to discuss the implementation of osteopathic recognition into an existing ACGME program. We delve into the areas of concern; curriculum, scholarship, faculty development and assessments. Clear examples are given for each area. The use of Scholar Teacher located on the OOA website is an excellent means of providing Osteopathic faculty development. The Scholar Series, also found on the OOA website will also assist in the development of Osteopathic research. In addition, we look into avenues for the submission of scholarly work through Scholar Complete. With these tools and discussion, we hope that all ACGME programs will reach Osteopathic recognition.
More MDs are expressing an interest in learning how to integrate osteopathic philosophy and osteopathic manipulative medicine into their practices. This panel discussion which includes leaders involved in the change, faculty implementing it in their programs and the perspective of MD residents participating in OR programs will discuss these questions and more!
