As we celebrated Thanksgiving last week and enter the holiday season, we want to express our gratitude for your engagement in AOGME and your ongoing leadership in support of the osteopathic profession. We encourage you to nominate a colleague or leader for the 2022 AOGME Awards. The call for nominations closes on December 30th and features three categories of awards: Leadership, Special Lifetime Achievement and Special Award of Appreciation. Awardees will be recognized at Educating Leaders 2022, the AACOM Annual Conference. Learn more about the AOGME Awards.

As a final reminder, consider joining the AOGME’s Collegium of Fellows, which is an honor recognizing long and meritorious service to the AOGME and the osteopathic profession. The status of Fellows is awarded for life, and when awarded the recipient is entitled to use the initials FAOGME following his/her name and degree. Applications must be received by December 1, 2021. Learn more about the Collegium of Fellows.

On December 15, join us for the last AOGME membership meeting of the calendar year and an opportunity to connect with peers and raise topics for feedback or discussion. These meetings are held monthly. Last month, the membership met and discussed the UME-GME Review Committee recommendations from the Coalition for Physician Accountability, providing invaluable feedback to AACOM on these issues. Contact us at if you have any questions or have not received a meeting invitation.

Learn about Milestones 2.0 and Osteopathic Recognition

The AOGME will close out this calendar year’s webinar series on December 8 with an update from Laura Edgar, EdD, CAE, Vice President of Milestone Development at the ACGME. Dr. Edgar will discuss milestones 2.0 updates and the new Osteopathic Recognition milestones. Register today.

View our catalogue of on-demand educational content, including 15 webinars since January 2021. We thank the AOGME Education Committee for their efforts to facilitate the webinar series.

Osteopathic Health Policy Fellowship

To educate and encourage AOGME members and the GME community at-large about opportunities to learn and engage in health policy efforts, AOGME held a three-part series of webinars, which concluded this month, featuring the co-directors of the Osteopathic Health Policy Fellowship. The co-directors, Dr. Al Pheley and Dr. Daniel Skinner, focused on advocacy at the state level, graduate medical education policy, and reviewed the osteopathic health policy fellowship program. The call for applications for the Osteopathic Health Policy Fellowship will open soon. View the webinar series.

Welcome to our new members this month, we look forward to your engagement! Please feel free to reach out to us at any time with direct inquires by emailing  or calling us at 301-657-7881.

Thank you,

Thomas Mohr, MS, DO, FACOI, FAOGME
