AOA Site Visit Results in KCUMB's OPTI Receiving Maximum Five-Year Accreditation

At its spring meeting, the American Osteopathic Association's Council on Osteopathic Post-doctoral Training Institutions awarded our OPTI, KCUMB-COMEC, a maximum five-year continuing accreditation based upon the findings of a site visit that took place Jan. 27-28.

In addition to successfully achieving a major component of COCA Standard 8 (Tracking GME Outcomes), which is the most recent requirement for colleges of osteopathic medicine, this positive outcome reinforces the importance of supportive relationships with our hospital partners in training residents.
