To ensure patients have access to the most highly qualified physicians, the ACOFP Foundation has pledged to financially support eligible residents that wish to take both portions of the AOBFP exam, as well as cover up to $500 in travel expenses for each resident. Eligible residents are those who do not have the financial support from their residency program to sit for the AOBFP exams. Through this effort, the Foundation will ensure that all osteopathic residents, regardless of support from their residency program, is given an equal opportunity to demonstrate their patient care qualifications.
In the first cycle of the program, the ACOFP Foundation’s Initial Certification Grant program was able to provide over $125,000 in funding to 100 third-year residents sitting for both the cognitive and practical AOBFP certification exams. 10 of those recipients were from Michigan.
Please consider supporting this vital program.
