Core Competency Liaisons

In support of the recommendations of the Core Competency Task Force, the osteopathic deans unanimously agreed to identify a representative from each COM for the Core Competency Liaison Group. This liaison is to be a contact person to share information and requests to the appropriate individuals in all COMs and identifying appropriate experts from the COMs for designated projects.

The following individuals, as liaison for each of their respective colleges, provided guidance and input on the current Core Competency document, Osteopathic Core Competencies for Medical Students.
