Connect with your Colleagues in the AOGME Membership Discussion Forums! 

In this time of rapid change, AOGME seeks to offer connections with members to help support and share perspectives, challenges, guidance and information. Beginning in April, AOGME is hosting open forums for members to share experiences, challenges and approaches to addressing pandemic-related, and other issues, in graduate medical education. Contact us at aogme@aacom.org for more information. 

The Residents and Fellows Council (RFC) is a special membership within AACOM’s Assembly of Osteopathic Graduate Medical Educators (AOGME) specifically for resident and fellow physicians. The RFC serves as a platform for members to exchange ideas, network, and gain access to professional development opportunities.

The RFC also serves as a forum for members to voice concerns, suggestions, and expectations to national medical education leaders. The RFC wants to maintain connection with medical students as they prepare for the transition to residency. Join the new listserv to get invitations to webinars, meetings and engage with residents and fellows!
