Can a D.O. be ACGME accredited?
If that D.O. is an allopathic program. Let me ask you this: May one apply to him via ERAS, or do you just give him a call at home? DOES HE HAVE A DORSAL FIN?
A DO can go to an ACGME residency, take a 3 steps of the USMLE, and have the same licensure and board certification as an MD.
ACGME accredits hospitals, not humans.
Buddy, I think you need to be TURFed to pysch.
P.S. To enter the ACGME (MD) match, you do the exact same thing as MD's do.
Yes, ~50% of DO grads for ACGME residency and get acredit that way.
Most do USMLEs and the COMLEX, some do just COMLEX (some ACGME residencies will except the COMLEX). DO's apply through the same MATCH as MD do and in most places get same treatment during the complete application process. (DOs also have an AOA match as well).
There are joint AOA/ACGME residencies as well, but those are few and far inbetween. YOu can then get accredit be allopathic board of _____ (specialty).
