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.
