In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Osteopathic Medical Leadership Convenes Historic Summit in Response to changes, challenges in America's healthcare

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaders of the osteopathic medical profession gathered in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 8, 2012 for the first United States Osteopathic Medical Regulatory Summit, hosted by the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME). The Summit united key players from the osteopathic medical regulation community – those entrusted with osteopathic physician assessment, undergraduate medical education, graduate medical education, licensure and certification – to discuss issues critical to delivery of high quality health care and the osteopathic medical profession.

Serving as impetus for the gathering were a number of significant developments, including recent proposed changes to osteopathic graduate medical training and accreditation, future requirements for osteopathic continuous certification, and most important, the future health care needs of the American public resulting from full implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

"This is an era of unprecedented change to many aspects of health care delivery as well as medical education and training," explained Janice A. Knebl, DO, MBA, NBOME Board Chair. "Motivated by this and the ever-increasing need for qualified physicians – particularly in primary care and under-served areas across the country – we gathered to discuss how to respond as a profession, and what our respective organizations will do to advance quality osteopathic patient care in the context of this changing environment."

"At a time when a rapidly aging population and expanded access to health care coverage are having a significant impact on the demand for physicians, the osteopathic medical profession remains committed to delivering health care to those who need it the most," said Ray E. Stowers, DO, President of the American Osteopathic Association. "With an emphasis on prevention and patient-centered care, osteopathic medical graduates are well equipped to deliver primary care in communities that have few options for medical services. In fact, more than 60 percent of osteopathic physicians currently practice family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics or obstetrics and gynecology, while new osteopathic medical schools are offering instruction in some of the most rural and medically underserved regions of the country, ranging from Harlem to Appalachia to the Pacific Northwest."

Representatives of the osteopathic profession in attendance at the Summit included:
American Osteopathic Association (AOA): Ray E. Stowers, DO, President; John B. Crosby, JD, Executive Director; Linda L. Mascheri, Director of the Department of State, Affiliate, and International Affairs; Boyd R. Buser, DO, AOA Trustee
AOA Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists (BOS): Stephen M. Scheinthal, DO, Chair; Ronald E. Ayres, DO, Past Chair
American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM): Stephen Shannon, DO, MPH, President; Lori Kemper, DO, Board of Deans member
American Association of Osteopathic Examiners (AAOE): Dana Shaffer, DO, President; Geraldine O'Shea, DO, Vice-President; James Andriole, DO, Past-President
Note: The AAOE represents the osteopathic physician members of the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), whose member organizations grant licenses for doctors of osteopathic medicine at the state level.
AOA Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA): Thomas A. Cavalieri, DO, Chair; Sandra Featherman, PhD, Vice Chair; Konrad Miskowicz-Retz PhD, CAE, Secretary
Association of Osteopathic Directors and Medical Educators (AODME): Richard LaBaere, II, DO, MPH, President; Michael Finley, DO, Board Member; Gary L. Slick, DO, Board Member

They joined the 23 members of the NBOME Board of Directors, led by Dr. Knebl and Vice Chair, Wayne Carlsen, DO, and other members of the NBOME Executive staff. 

A poll of participants during the Summit revealed widespread consensus on the following statement: "Because of the substantial contributions of osteopathic medicine to health care and the entire house of medicine in America over the last 138 years, a distinctive osteopathic medical profession is valuable to the health of the American public."

Indeed, a review of the mission statements of all participating organizations showed the common threads of protecting the public through the distinctive practice of osteopathic medicine.

During the Summit, each leader was asked to consider what role their organization can play to help advance high quality osteopathic patient care in the United States. John R. Gimpel, DO, MEd, President and Chief Executive Officer, responded on behalf of the NBOME:

"At the NBOME, we believe strongly that patients are best served by seeking care from osteopathic physicians who have qualified by virtue of passing graduation requirements and competency assessments designed for the practice of osteopathic medicine and validated for that distinct purpose," Dr. Gimpel explained. "That is why the NBOME is committed to providing the highest quality evaluation tools to assess osteopathic medical students, residents and physicians." 

Leaders from the participating organizations likewise agreed with the need for osteopathically distinctive and valid assessment tools in qualifying osteopathic physicians along the education, training and practice continuum.
