AOGME continues to be active and visible in national organizations and initiatives such as the National Collaborative for Improving the Clinical Learning Environment (NCICLE). AOGME’s representatives on NCICLE, Drs. Olivia Ojano Sheehan (Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine) and Sandra Snyder (Cleveland Clinic) attended the NCICLE workshop on August 18, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN. Invited representatives from various professional organizations and associations in medicine, health professions and accreditation engaged in small group discussions on three topics: integrating inter-professional learning and collaborative care into the strategic plan, ensuring ongoing inter-professional input, and moving from the what to the how of building team-oriented structure from the hospitals and clinics perspective. One of the highlights of the workshop was the discussion of actionable items that participants can bring to their organizations and associations, which will be reflected in a future official report from NCICLE.
AOGME is also pleased to have two members, Brandon Issacs, DO and Shawn Hamm, DO, represent the first AOGME team at the 2019 COM Day on Capitol Hill on October 16-17. This event is AACOM's annual advocacy day for osteopathic medical school/campus deans, OGME leaders, and designated representatives to meet with their lawmakers in Washington, DC about federal policy issues affecting the osteopathic medical education community.
