Osteopathic Learning Environment

It is expected every ACGME-accredited program with Osteopathic Recognition will create an osteopathic-focused learning environment that spans the length of the educational program. Each program has varying resources and missions based on geographic location, background of faculty members, and the needs of the patient population it serves. The avenues to attain an osteopathic learning environment are equally varying, to allow each individual program to successfully meet the Requirements for Osteopathic Recognition.

Post-graduate training occurs through both longitudinal and focused educational experiences. In this spirit, an osteopathic learning environment provides experiences that support this developmental process for each program and the learners within it. The ACGME Milestones allow for this developmental growth throughout the course of the educational program.

There are several elements a program can utilize to establish an osteopathic learning environment, which may include focused rotations, integrated rotations, osteopathic rounds, clinic rotations, and osteopathic patient care conferences.
