I have never claimed to be an oracle and don’t intend to claim to be one now. But as I thought might happen, as of Feb. 26, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) have agreed to establish a single accreditation system for graduate medical education programs in the U.S.
