Editor’s Note: October 15, 2019. This article is out of date. The AOA and ACGME are in the final year of a 5-year transition to a single accreditation system for graduate medical education. For DOs who train in an ACGME program and wish to obtain a license in Pennsylvania or Florida, the AOA has a pathway to have ACGME PGY1 training recognized as AOA approved. For more information, visit https://osteopathic.org/residents/recognition-of-training/aoa-recognition-of-acgme-pgy1-year/. Since the 1970s, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) has provided a means for osteopathic physicians to apply for approval of their postdoctoral training in programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Osteopathic physicians who trained in ACGME programs need this approval to meet AOA licensure and board certification requirements. The AOA approves ACGME residency training with several different approval processes. Approval of the first year of postdoctoral training occurs through Resolution 42, specialty approval (for specialties in which the first year of training is part of the residency), or federal or military training approval. For residency training, the AOA verifies successful completion of an ACGME training program before approving the training. The AOA is using customer surveys and online applications to improve the review process for applicants.
