    AOA rotations

    Advertisements



    I was told I can do an AOA rotation. My questions are:

    1) What is it?
    2) Will this get in my way of getting an allopathic internship?
    3) Has anyone done one yet? If yes, where?

    Thank you in advance

    Who told you to do AOA rotation? Looks like it is a DO rotation and most likely be a blue book.

    For Texas licensure (all states will differ), AOA rotations seem to be fine, but to be considered Greenbook, they must follow the same requirements as ACGME in that they have to have a residency program in that subject matter. Luckily in TX, board certification negates the need for greenbooks. No clue how AOA rotations (green or not) will affect residency. My guess is that it wouldn't, but that also could vary by state / residency program.

    An applicant who is unable to comply with this requirement, for example, an international medical graduate who performed clinical clerkships in the United States, must demonstrate that the applicant either:

    1) received such medical education in a hospital or teaching institution sponsoring or participating in a program of graduate medical education accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, or the board in the same subject (emphasis added) as the medical or osteopathic medical education if the hospital or teaching institution has an agreement with the applicant's school; or,

    2) is specialty board certified by a board approved by the ABMS or BOS.

    Yes it is. AOA is the American Osteopathic Association.

    Okay so to add to the above, our AOA rotations are not based on greenbook. I was told it would be bluebook. It is an osteopathic rotation and I have read of people crossing over to an allopathic residency and v.versa...

    AOA rotations are fine in most places if you can't get Green rotations. But, there are ways that Caribbean schools trick students into thinking a rotation is AOA-accredited. You have to manually call the department you are assigned to (Pediatrics for example) and ask them if there is a Pediatrics residency program present on-site. I'm sure there's some website to look this up but I'm not sure about it.

    Even though these rotations are fine in terms of accreditation, try to do allopathic rotations in areas that you are interested in. For example, if you are forced to do an AOA IM rotation and you want to go into IM, try to do a subinternship in IM at a Greenbook site later on. And obviously try to get the LOR from the allopathic program's director.

    This looks like the AOA site to check out residencies / greenbooks.
