To assess effectiveness in the integration of core competencies, the AOA requires the development and implementation of an Institutional Core Competency Plan. The purpose of the plan is to create an internal process that outlines the methods chosen by an institution to achieve compliance and evaluation activities.
Institutions sponsoring AOA approved intern, residency and fellowship programs are required to conduct internal reviews of all approved programs in order to assess their compliance with the Institutional Requirements described in the AOA’s Basic Document for Postdoctoral Training Programs and the program requirements of the AOA Specialty Colleges.
The AOA Basic Document requires that each program with one or more deficiencies complete a Corrective Action Plan listing the steps that the program will take to correct those deficiencies.
