AOAAM is pleased to announce that on Saturday, July 27, 2019, the AOA House of Delegates passed House Resolution 232. This resolution allows osteopathic physicians who completed an AOA approved fellowship in addiction medicine to take a primary certifying exam in addiction medicine, and also creates a practice pathway for qualified DOs to take a primary certifying exam in addiction medicine. It is the intent of the AOA that any DO with an active primary AOA board certification in any specialty will be able to seek certification through this pathway.
Thanks to our AOAAM Delegate Margi Kotz, DO, alternate Delegate Steve Wyatt, DO, past presidents, and Executive Director Nina Vidmer, who have been working tirelessly for years on getting the CAQ reinstated.
