(11/14/14) This past weekend, the ACGME Executive Committee approved AOA’s nominees to the Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) Review Committee. These appointments will become effective January 1, 2015, pending approval of bylaw changes by ACGME member organizations. The ONMM will develop standards for and evaluate Neuromusculoskeletal and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine residency programs under the single graduate medical education accreditation system.
