Osteopathic precepting has become increasingly prevalent for South Carolina physicians with the influx of Osteopathic student rotations with VCOM and other osteopathic medical schools. The number of DOs and osteopathic medical students in the United States now exceeds 178,000. According to the American Osteopathic Association’s Osteopathic Medical Profession Report, this is an 80% increase over the past decade. With continued growth of the osteopathic profession, additional preceptors are needed for these medical students and residents.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). The S.C. Osteopathic Medical Society (SCOMS) is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) to provide osteopathic continuing medical education for physicians.
