2019 AOGME Chair

July 31, 2019

This month, we are excited to open registration for the AOGME Graduate Medical Education Leadership Development Program (GME-LDP). Working in partnership with the Academy for Academic Leadership (AAL), the GME-LDP is a hybrid of live webinars (also offered asynchronously) and a one-day, in-person workshop. The program will include group discussions, case studies, role playing, interactive exercises, and presentations to help build and support your professional and personal growth. By focusing on creating a clear bridge between theory and practice, GME-LDP will provide you with new tools and leave you looking at your role through a widened lens. Registration is now open, learn more and sign-up today!

This month, the new AOGME Board met for the annual strategic planning retreat in Chicago during the AOA House of Delegates. The group celebrated the progress on the 2018-19 goals and objectives and looked to future initiatives to support the membership and osteopathic GME. The Board will finalize the strategic goals for 2019-2020 in August—stay tuned for more details on what we have planned this upcoming year!

GME Advocacy Opportunity

This year, we are working to assemble a small team of AOGME members to attend AACOM’s 2019 COM Day on Capitol Hill. This event is AACOM's annual advocacy day for osteopathic medical school/campus deans, OGME leaders, and designated representatives to meet with their lawmakers in Washington, DC about federal policy issues affecting the osteopathic medical education community. COM Day 2019 will be held on October 16 – 17, which includes an invitation-only dinner on Wednesday, October 16 and COM Day will commence early the morning of October 17 with a full breakfast and legislative briefing, followed by pre-scheduled congressional office visits. If you are interested in participating, please email by August 2, 2019. Limited funding is available. Members who are local to the Washington DC area are strongly encouraged to attend.
