Thank you to those who participated on the Practitioner's Forum. In deference to the legal process between the US Department of Education (USDE) and certain AOM schools on the topic of Gainful Employment Regulations, the forum post has been suspended. The topic of GE regulations is an important one. The AAAOM and other national organizations led the conversation in 2014 through the attached letter to the USDE which breaks down the complexities of the issue and how it impacts our field. We look forward to supporting the AOM community and working with colleges and practitioners to improve graduate success.

As always, don't hesitate to contact us at

Thank you again for your active participation in shaping the future of the profession.
