Abstract

Happy New Year and welcome to the 2020s! With the current rate of osteopathic students going into family medicine at 27 percent and the increase in the number of DO graduates in the next five years of around 12,000, we have the opportunity to welcome over 3,000 family medicine residents into the profession and ACOFP family. Compare that to only 1,600 MD graduates choosing family medicine in 2018.
