Hello! Please sign our letter encouraging the Rocky Mountain Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institution in Utah to apply for their Family Medicine Residency program to be under the new single ACGME accreditation. Below is the letter we will be sending the program director.

Dear Dr. Brian Rogers, DO,

The Student Association of the American College of Osteopathic Physicians (SAACOFP) at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine would like to encourage you to consider applying for ACGME Single Accreditation. The more residency programs that apply for the single accreditation the more opportunities there will be for student physicians to go into their choice of a medical field. The Rocky Mountain Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institution has shown a dedication to the osteopathic profession with many different residency sites all around the west coast. The opening of the Family Medicine Residency program that is currently in development at Lakeview Hospital would further improve the opportunities that RMOPTI has available. This would be an additional site where medical students can match into a residency program that best fits their personality, medical field of choice, and a location that has the same core values. Since there is a shortage in primary care physicians, especially Family Medicine physicians, the RMOPTI FM residency program at Lakeview Hospital would keep the door open for more family medicine physicians to be trained in Utah.

Furthermore, Lakeview Hospital has shown a commitment to caring, so training future family physicians would enhance the care provided to your patient population. The RMOPTI residency program would allow for residents to learn about family medicine, invest in the patient population, and become an integral part of the medical team and community. With your previous emphasis on osteopathic medicine, becoming a part of the single accreditation would allow for allopathic physicians to learn more about osteopathic virtues. This would be a unique experience where allopaths and osteopaths can collaborate and treat patients under an osteopathic mindset. Your residency program would be one of a few under the new accreditation that will be dedicated to preserving osteopathic medicine and providing the training as how a future osteopathic Family Medicine physician will practice medicine.
