AACOM Publishes Single GME Accreditation System White Paper

Next Steps for Graduate Medical Education coverAACOM recently released a new white paper publication entitled, "Next Steps for Graduate Medical Education: Osteopathic Graduate Medical Education (OGME) and the Single Graduate Medical Education (GME) Accreditation System."

This publication features the work of AACOM’s Ad Hoc Committee on GME Transition, a nine-member committee of thought leaders in the osteopathic medical education (OME) field. The Ad Hoc Committee on GME Transition was formed to provide its perspective to the ACGME’s Osteopathic Principles Committee (OPC) as they developed requirements for programs seeking osteopathic recognition under the single GME accreditation system.

Featuring both scholarly research and a detailed overview of the single graduate medical education accreditation system, this paper is designed to introduce its readers to OME and its role in the single GME accreditation system and to contribute to ongoing dialogue in the OME community on these issues. View the full white paper here.
