AOGME Residents and Fellows Council


The AOGME Residents and Fellows Council (RFC) was established in 2018 to develop future leaders in the osteopathic profession by creating a community and forum for residents and fellows to connect, collaborate and learn.

The RFC's purpose is to:

  • Provide a home for residents and fellows to come together, exchange ideas, and network
  • Serve as a platform for residents and fellows to voice their ideas and concerns to graduate medical education (GME) leaders
  • Develop future leaders
  • Promote well-being along the continuum of GME
  • Support advocacy efforts that address the needs of medical trainees
