Core Competencies

American Osteopathic Association Core Competencies

Using the seven core competency domains published by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) as a guide, the college has incorporated competency training and assessment into its curriculum throughout the four-year course of study for the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree program at a level appropriate for a medical student preparing to enter GME. The competencies taught and evaluated as well as the level of performance expected from the student are addressed in the syllabus for each of the courses.
