Currently, trainees selecting postdoctoral training programs may choose to attend training programs approved by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), dually approved or accredited by both the AOA and the ACGME, or parallel programs, which are conducted separately but side-by-side with ACGME programs in the same specialty. 
The information in the tables on the following pages reflect information related to dually accredited and parallel postdoctoral training programs for the AOA through 2013.
