    Are AOA Residents (at AOA Hospitals / Programs) goverened by the same RRC rules as MD programs?

    Can someone provide a link to the RRC procedure requirments (numbers of different procedures required to complete residency)for the AOA?

    Thanks

    Question #1 - no. AOA programs are accredited and monitored by the AOA council on postgraduate training, not the ACGME or the RRC.

    As for part #2, there is probably more than one place to find such information. One such place I found is:

    another could probably be found from the ACOEP (college of Osteopathic EPs):
