As osteopathic residency and fellowship programs transition into becoming programs within the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), research and scholarly activity is one vital part of osteopathic programs that has been noted to be lacking. One concern of lack of interest in research and scholarly activity could be attributed to a lack of opportunity in research during medical school. This presentation will discuss ACGME residency and fellowship research and scholarly requirements and findings of data collected from student participation in a research rotation elective during their third and fourth year of medical school. From this information, we will provide recommendations on aligning preparation in medical school and successfully meeting research requirements.
