ACOFP Promotes Osteopathic Distinctiveness
The ACOFP is encouraging all AOA-accredited osteopathic family medicine residency programs to maintain their osteopathic distinctiveness by also applying for Osteopathic Recognition status under the ACGME Single Accreditation System. This ACGME Osteopathic Recognition brochure explains how residencies can integrate Osteopathic Medical Education into their curriculum.

Number of DOs Continues to Grow
A study in the Journal of Medical Regulation called "A Census of Actively Licensed Physicians in the United States" reports that the osteopathic profession is growing at a faster rate than the allopathic profession. From 2010 to 2016, the number of actively licensed physicians who are DOs increased by 39 percent compared to a 10 percent increase in the number of MDs.
