AOM Residency FAQs

What is an AOM Residency?

Residency has long been a standard for post-graduate medical training in allopathic and osteopathic medicine, and an option in chiropractic and naturopathic medicine. Two types of residency are currently available: private clinic residency and on-campus residency.
