There is currently an open officer position for the secretary/treasurer that will be in place in March 2020. Service on the AOGME board is a fulfilling and important opportunity to shape the future of osteopathic GME at a time of significant change. I strongly encourage you to participate, please read the call for nominations for details and contact us at aogme@aacom.org should you have any questions. Nominations are accepted until January 13, 2020.
