The JAOA would like readers to note that a typographic error appeared in Table 4 of the following medical education article: 
Sweet S. Undergraduate osteopathic medical education. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2004 Nov;104(11):460-467. 
The total enrollment provided for the number of students enrolled in colleges of osteopathic medicine in 2002 (11,432) was incorrect and should have appeared as 11,198. 
The author's 2005 update for this article, which appears in the present issue of JAOA, shows the corrected total enrollment for 2002 in Table 4 (see page 57). 
A typographic error appeared in Table 4 of the following medical education article: 
Ramirez AF. Board certification of osteopathic physicians. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2004 Nov;104(11):485-492. 
Although the time limit on certificates for the American Osteopathic Board of Proctology appears in Table 4 correctly as 10 years, the date for the implementation of that time limit was incorrectly published as January 1, 2004, when it should have appeared as January 1, 2002. 
The author's 2005 update for this article, which appears in the present issue of JAOA, shows the corrected date in Figure 2 (see page 82). 
Several corrections have been made to Table 7 in both of the following medical education articles: 
Obradovic JL, Beaudry SW, Winslow-Falbo P. 
Osteopathic graduate medical education. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2004 Nov;104(11):468-478. 
Obradovic JL, Winslow-Falbo P. Osteopathic graduate medical education [Published correction appears in: J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2004 Apr;104(4):147]. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2003 Nov;103(11):513-522. 
The authors' 2005 update for this article, which appears in the present issue of JAOA, shows the corrected number of programs, positions, and residents for the 2003–2004 academic year in Table 6 (see page 67). The corrected number of programs, positions, and residents for the 2002–2003 academic year were originally published in the 2004 update for this article, noted above. 
Program data changes quarterly as a result of actions by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Council on Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training's Program and Trainee Review Committee, which has the sole authority to approve osteopathic medical residency programs and positions. Newly approved residency programs and positions are added to the AOA database at that time. Therefore, data for the number of AOA-approved programs, positions, and residents is finalized one year after the conclusion of an academic year.
