Transition to Residency

The COVID-19 global pandemic has disrupted almost all aspects of life. Medical education has been no exception, but through it all, our community has exhibited remarkable innovation and resilience. Throughout the crisis, both medical students and residents have selflessly provided care for patients, oftentimes sacrificing elements of their own professional development, while deepening care to others.

The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates | Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (ECFMG|FAIMER) have come together to develop voluntary guidance, toolkits, and other resources to assist in the transition of 2021 medical school graduates into their first post-graduate year of medical education and training.
