Advocating for Inclusion of Family Medicine DOs as Chairs of OMM Departments
ACOFP President Duane Koehler, DO, FACOFP dist. and new ACOFP Executive Director Bob Moore attended an AOA Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) meeting on December 1 regarding the requirements to be Chair of COM OMM Departments. Dr. Koehler made the case for inclusivity and the need for allowing more specialties to meet the COCA standard. If manipulation is included in the evaluation for certification, ACOFP believes this should be an acceptable discipline that meets this qualification. See the AOA’s webpage for more information on the COCA accreditation standards.
