    Consequences of AOA vs ACGME rotations

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone.

    Has anyone looked at the possibility of completing their core rotations at AOA approved programs vs ACGME approved programs?

    What would be the consequences of the same whilst applying for residency or State Licensure

    Thanks

    It ALWAYS looks better to have done them at an ACGME program, but it really depends on where you are applying and what state you want to practice in.

    windsor doesn't list where you did your rotations on your transcript, this makes your residency application a little weird

    also, most licensing boards aren't going to have any issue with AOA rotations if they're real (as in you were rounding under a resident & interns)

    American Osteopathic Association. It is a parallel way to get into residency. You are conferred a DO degree on completion vs the MD degree through regular medical school. MD and ACGME sort of go together as compared to DO and AOA.
