Join the conversation during the conference on twitter using the hashtag #ACGME2019 and also be sure to share your pictures and insights with AOGME using #AOGME.

In February, we held two live webinars that are now available for on-demand viewing. On February 6, Kimberly Wolf, DO, Director of Pediatric OMM at Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine (TUCOM-CA), discussed approaches to building a curriculum for Osteopathic Recognition. In addition, on February 21, Paul Johnson, Executive Director of the ACGME Institution Review Committee, discussed how to prepare for site visits and maintain continued accreditation. View the webinar recordings and slides.
