About Osteopathic Recognition

What Is Osteopathic Recognition?

Osteopathic Recognition is a commitment to providing optimal patient care based on osteopathic principles and practices. Osteopathic Recognition is a national recognition and designation conferred by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) on graduate medical education training programs that are committed to teaching osteopathic principles and practices at a graduate level.
