ACGME-Proposed Requirements for Osteopathic Recognition and Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Posted for Review and Public Comment

November 14, 2014

(11/14/14) Today, in another milestone in the transition to a Single GME Accreditation System, the ACGME posted proposed requirements for Osteopathic Recognition, drafted by the Osteopathic Principles Working Group, soon to be the Osteopathic Principles Committee (OPC). ACGME also posted program requirements for Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, drafted by the Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Working Group, soon to be the Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Review Committee (ONMM).

The proposed requirements are available for public comment until December 29, 2014. Read the new requirements.

After the conclusion of the 45-day comment period, the OPC and ONMM review committees will evaluate comments received and determine which suggestions to incorporate into the proposed requirements for submission to the ACGME Committee on Requirements (CoR). Final recommendations will be forwarded to the ACGME Board of Directors for action during their February 2015 Board meeting. Learn more about the ACGME review process and requirements.

AACOM is in the process of analyzing these draft requirements. We would like to coordinate efforts to provide comments on these requirements with member constituencies, AOA and other osteopathic organizations. Please stay tuned for more communication on coordination for the commenting process.
