​Single Accreditation System 

Application Assistance Program

To help your graduate medical education program achieve ACGME accreditation and osteopathic recognition, the AOA has created the SAS Application Assistance Program to answer the most complex questions and individually provide access to expert assistance. The program includes:

  • A customer service center giving you a single call line to address your questions.

  • Access to AOA staff experts

  • Professional consultants familiar with the single accreditation system

  • Ongoing survey of every program to track your progress

Although we cannot write your actual application, we can guide you through every step of the way. The program, which began May 2, 2016, will continue indefinitely.
