This program is being presented as a means of helping our AOA programs complete the necessary requirements to lead to ACGME accreditation or obtain osteopathic recognition under the new single accreditation system. A shared area of concern in applications pertains to the lack of research opportunities and scholarly work for AOA faculty. This program highlights prospective ways to address these issues with the support of UMPC Medical Education.
• Educate UPMC ME educators in improving feedback to medical learners
• Develop a definition of medical professionalism and remediation
• Share local and regional GME research and educational resources through oral and poster abstract sessions
• Educate UPMC ME educators of challenges in the Osteopathic Recognition
