ABS Osteopathic Trainees Policy Change

The American Board of Surgery recently posted a new policy regarding certification of osteopathic surgical residents.  

"To be eligible for certification in vascular surgery by the ABS through the independent (5+2) pathway, osteopathic surgical residents must have successfully completed training in an ACGME-accredited general surgery residency program according to the [outlined criteria], prior to completing an ACGME-accredited vascular surgery fellowship. The vascular surgery fellowship must be accredited by the ACGME for the entire duration of training. All other ABS requirements for certification in vascular surgery in effect at the time of application must also be fulfilled."​
