Osteopathic Recognition Toolkit

ACOFP and Assembly of Osteopathic Graduate Medical Educators (AOGME)/AACOM are collaborating to provide resources for programs with or applying for Osteopathic Recognition. We have pooled resources and sample evaluations to help programs in their efforts to attain Osteopathic Recognition. This toolkit will contain sample evaluations and other resources that you can use to help your program(s). These tools are meant to inspire you and give you examples of how you could build evaluations for your individual program. We hope these resources will make your journey to recognition easier and help you teach the next generation of osteopathically trained physicians.
