OR curriculum project

 AACOM’s Assembly of Osteopathic Graduate Medical Educators (AOGME) is inviting proposals to develop a national curriculum that will assist graduate medical education (GME) training programs in obtaining and maintaining Osteopathic Recognition (OR) through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). This curriculum should be flexible enough to be delivered online or live, depending on the resources available at each program.
