What does it take? $$$, doing FP with your electives, etc?
Thank you in advance for your time.

These are the core requirements:macman said:I read the above link and am now more confused than before-I do not think the are clear at all about what the requirements are!
drusso said:These are the core requirements:
That is, to be eligible for AOA internship approval of ACGME training the osteopathic physician must complete all six of the traditional rotating internships core rotations: 2 months internal medicine, 1 month emergency medicine, 1 month family practice, and two additional core rotations (internal medicine, surgery, female reproductive medicine, pediatrics, family practice, or emergency medicine).
You also have to demonstrate involvement in osteopathic professional activities. Read the resolution 42 application packet for more details.
It has to be something different. You'll also have to work-in a month of peds or surgery or something. They want it to be as broadly-based as possible. You find it helpful if you asked a traditional rotating internship Program Director to help you interpret the resolution.macman said:I guess my confusion stems from the two additional core rotation bit: so does that mean you could do two addiitonal months of IM to satisfy that or does it have to be different things? I will be doing a IM pre-lim year that will likely include one month of ER and I suppose I could do FP as an elective month.
