The JAOA regrets the errors described below. 
  • Watson DK, Nichols KJ. Medical education summits: building a solid foundation for the future of the osteopathic medical profession. J Am Osteopath Assoc. March 2008;108(3):110-115.
    On page 114 in the bulleted items listed in the “Outcomes” section, the overarching concept of specialty mix was described in the original print publication as follows: “The osteopathic primary care focus as exemplified in osteopathic medical education is essential to meet societal needs.” The specialty mix concept reviewed and approved during the Medical Education Summit II is more accurately reflected as follows: “The continued osteopathic primary care focus, as exemplified in the training of both osteopathic primary care physicians and specialists in AOA-accredited graduate programs, is essential to meet societal needs.”
  • Broski SE, Amundson DE. Paradoxical response to levalbuterol. J Am Osteopath Assoc. April 2008;108(4):211-213.
    In the third paragraph on the left column of page 212, the text erroneously stated that the (R)-isomer binds to the β3 receptor. The sentence should have stated that the (R)-isomer binds to the β2 receptor. This change has been made to both online versions of this article.
    In addition, readers should be aware of the following corrections (J Am Osteopath Assoc. March 2008;108:107) to previous editions of the osteopathic medical education theme issue published by JAOA—The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association:
  • Obradovic JL, Beaudry SW, Winslow-Falbo P. Osteopathic graduate medical education. J Am Osteopath Assoc. February 2006;106(2):59-68.
    Because data for the current academic year are to be considered incomplete until the following academic year, several updates were made to Table 4 for the subsequent edition of this annual contribution (J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2007;107:57-66). The following corrections for the 2004-2005 academic year originally appeared in Table 6 on pages 66-67:
     
    • The number of AOA-approved residency programs for anesthesiology and pain management was originally reported as 1, but was updated to 2.
    • Likewise, the number of AOA-approved residency positions for anesthesiology and pain management was originally reported as 2, but has been updated to 3.
    • The total number of AOA-approved residency programs was originally reported as 568, but has consequently been updated to 569.
    • Finally, the total number of residency positions was originally reported as 5216, but has been updated to 5217.
  • Rodgers DJ. Osteopathic continuing medical education. J Am Osteopath Assoc. February 2006;106(2):85-95.
    Two typographic errors appeared in tables that accompanied the article noted above:
     
    • In Table 1 on page 86 under “Category 1-B,” the parenthetical description of continuing medical education (CME) on the Internet as “real-time interactive simultaneous conferencing” was incorrect and should have appeared as “not real-time interactive simultaneous conferencing.”
    • In Table 5 on page 95, the total number of CME credit hours reported for the 2001 to 2003 CME cycle should have been reported as 13.1 instead of 13.0.
  • Rodgers DJ. Osteopathic continuing medical education. J Am Osteopath Assoc. February 2007;107(2):67-81.
    Two typographic errors appeared in the first paragraph under “CME Program Trends and Statistics” on page 76, in the article noted above:
     
    • The total number of members of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) as of September 2005 was mistakenly reported as 59,000 when it should have been reported as 28,042.
    • In consequence, the percentage of AOA members with a state-mandated continuing medical education requirement should have appeared as 93% instead of 44%. ♦
