This month, the AOGME leadership finalized strategic goals and objectives following a strategic planning retreat in July. The strategic goals include supporting the development of GME programs and advancing the osteopathic learning environment; promoting leadership and professional development opportunities to GME professionals; supporting learners across the continuum and enhancing the value of AOGME. We look forward to membership’s involvement in our efforts to execute the objectives in the strategic plan.
