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.

Questions about Osteopathic Recognition? Visit the ACGME website. Questions about this toolkit? Contact Judy Schwellenbach at judys@acofp.org.


The sample forms and documents are provided to serve as a resource for you to create forms and documents specific to the requirements of your residency program specialty. The forms and documents are a guide and should be customized to meet ACGME Osteopathic Recognition requirements.

As requirements change and are ultimately determined by the Osteopathic Principles Committee, AACOM/AOGME and ACOFP does not warrantee the recognition approval of any program or institution that have used the sample evaluation forms.
