Establishing osteopathic assessments to fulfill osteopathic recognition standards: a model for dermatology and other subspecialties

Scott J. Mahlberg, DO; Yujie Linda Liou, DO; and Jenifer Lloyd, DO
In this Commentary, based on the results of a literature review, the authors propose a model to provide a focused osteopathic assessment for the purposes of maintaining Osteopathic Recognition within residency training programs based on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s six core competencies. Examples of multiple choice and essay questions are provided, as is a rubric for grading. The model is applied to the field of dermatology in this article but proposed as a blueprint for other subspecialties.
