The AOA Match and the Future of Osteopathic Residency Positions: The Good News and the Bad News MAME- March 7, 2012 Jon Rohrer, Ph.D., D.Min. Associate Director
Perceptions What is your perception about the future of osteopathic residency education? What is the evidential foundation of your perception about the future of osteopathic residency education? What impact does this have on your sphere of influence and practice?
Presentation Overview of trends for colleges of osteopathic medicine. Summary of recent match results and positions Review of LCME accredited schools and ACGME residency positions and the impact on the future of GME for osteopathic students Observations and summary conclusions- good news bad news with not recommendations for response and application.

Results of the 2010 Medical School Enrollment Survey June AAMC
Future Growth Trends: AAMC and AACOM Using a baseline of first year students enrolled in 2002, US MD schools will increase by 22% from 16,488 to 20,181 by Using a baseline of first year students enrolled in medical schools in 2002 US DO schools will increase enrollment by 102% from 3,079 to 6,222 By 2015, MD and DO schools will have a combined increase of 35%, producing almost 7,000 more new doctors every year compared to 2002.
2012 Match Projections for Osteopathic Students The final picture will only be known after the NRMP. 2,352 Students did not participate in the AOA Match. 70% of osteopathic students applying to the NRMP match with a residency program 30% will not match (705) 705 unmatched NRMP +606 unmatched AOA match candidates= 1311 students that will seek to fill 888 slots that were unfilled in the AOA Match Some may find positions in the NRMP SOAP Program

SCS Hospital Match Summary SCS hospitals offered 436 slots for the AOA match (16% of the 2,655 positions offered nationally.) 347 slots have filled, leaving 89 vacant positions Majority of the unfilled slots are traditional internships (33), family medicine (26), and internal medicine (14). Given the number of students that did not match nationally in the AOA match (606) and the projected number that will not match in the NRMP, it is assumed that all open SCS slots will be filled.
Good News Bad News Good News Osteopathic Colleges will continue to grow. Hospitals with osteopathic slots will fill their positions \ Michigan will be a destination for osteopathic students seeking osteopathic residencies, particularly in the surgical specialties Bad News GME will not grow to meet the demands of the growth in osteopathic graduates. The number of osteopathic students will increase The increase in MSUCOM graduates will narrow the availability of residency slots in Michigan
Good News Bad News Good News The COCA Study Group on Osteopathic Graduate Medical Education has published a report on recommended requirements for osteopathic GME The AOA has formulated a Blue Ribbon Panel to propose solutions to the AOA BOE and BOT Bad News Measures recommended are too little too late At this point, no one knows what the recommendations will entail.
Conclusion: Multiple Factors in Play With No Immediate Solutions Combined first year MD and DO enrollment in 2015 is projected to be 26,403, 35% above Increase in GME slots shows no significant projected increase to correspond to the increase of students as the disparity between student and GME slots worsens. Osteopathic dependence on ACGME programs will increase at a time when MD students and IMGs grow in number. Osteopathic medicine will remain rooted in primary care. ACGME guidelines will restrict access of residents trained osteopathically. All this against the projected shortage of physicians by 2020.
Good News Bad News Osteopathic dependence on ACGME programs will increase Osteopathic medicine will remain rooted in primary care The disparity between students and GME slots will worsen
