Holiday Greetings from AOGME Chair

Dr. Thomas Mohr -100pxDecember 21, 2020

As 2020 draws to a close, we know this has been an exceptionally difficult year. We applaud your resilience and the work you do and wish you a restful and happy holiday season!

In February, we look forward to connecting with you virtually at the ACGME/AOGME Osteopathic Recognition Pre-Conference Workshop on Wednesday, February 24, 9:00am-1:00pm. We are thrilled to partner with the ACGME again to present this workshop, which for the first time solicited abstracts from the community. View the workshop agenda and register for the conference.

Last month, I mentioned my involvement in the Coalition for Physician Accountability UME-GME Transition Review Committee. The Committee seeks statements on the ideal future state of the transition from UME-GME from AACOM. We are asking AOGME members to provide feedback on their future ideal design of the UME-GME transition on the following poll by December 31 to help inform our statement.

Next month, we will kick off our webinar series with content to support students in the transition to residency hosted by the AOGME Residents and Fellows Council. AOGME members can also access the on-demand webinar library, with over 50 webinar recordings offered for free to AOGME members.
