NAIOMT has recently made the decision to not seek ABPTRFE re-accreditation of its Orthopedic Clinical Residency Program. Started in 2014, in partnership with Andrews University, the program served many students, some of whom have gone onto complete NAIOMT fellowships and who are now on track to NAIOMT faculty status. It also provided a strong foundation for those looking to complete a terminal DSc degree at Andrews University.
Ten years. It was ten years ago that I took the NAIOMT upper quadrant course which consisted of Cervical II and Shoulder/elbow/wrist. It was ten years ago that I left the course and distinctly remember calling my husband and telling him that it was just too hard. I was so excited about what I was learning but was convinced that I could never pass the tests. I told him (and myself) that I would continue to take the classes for the knowledge but would never be able to pass the exams. They seemed impossible for me to pass.
