The Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education
The Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE) is an osteopathic medical education consortium that serves as an Osteopathic Post-Doctoral Training Institution (OPTI) formed through affiliations between the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine and hospitals in the state of Ohio to provide graduate medical education to osteopathic interns, residents and fellows. The CORE supports effective osteopathic learning environments for OGME programs for the maintenance of American Osteopathic Association accreditation.
Supporting and sustaining a partnership to enhance osteopathic medical education for those we serve.
The CORE exists to protect the integrity of the osteopathic profession; provide quality education; and promote innovation, creativity and excellence in medical education. We support the development of primary care physicians and specialists, foster research and strive to develop community-based faculty to teach and administer training programs. The CORE supports and promotes the development of an infrastructure that produces osteopathic physicians who are educators, researchers and administrators with a goal to continue to expand and enhance osteopathic contributions to the nation’s health care system.
A Time of Transition
A single accreditation system for graduate medical education programs in the U.S. is now nearly complete. The CORE is undergoing a transformation to continue to support residency education in a new environment. As some of our programs enter into the single accreditation system under ACGME, we are continuing to operate as an OPTI and provide essential services to those residency programs operating under the American Osteopathic Association.
