AOA Intern/Resident Registration Program

for Positions Beginning in 2016

AOA Intern/Resident Registration Program

The AOA Intern/Resident Registration Program is a matching program that places students into osteopathic graduate medical education positions in the United States. The Intern/Resident Registration Program (the "Match") is sponsored and supervised by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). The Match is administered on behalf of the AOA by National Matching Services Inc.

To obtain an AOA-approved OGME-1 position in an osteopathic internship or residency, or to obtain an OGME-2 residency position in Dermatology or Preventive Medicine-Public Health, students and trainees must register for and participate in the AOA Match.
