Dear Ms. Thoma:
To date, I have not received a response back from the letter that I initially sent in May via email, and certified mail. It was signed for by S. Burnett on May 27th, 2014. We are nearing July. I would like answers to my many concerns. I would appreciate it very much if you would make this priority or forward it to someone that can answer my concerns.
I am saddened by the seriousness of the path that the AOA has taken in its several components of restructuring our profession and representing not only those who are members but all Osteopathic physicians, without seeking the opinions of the whole of the profession.
As we have seen in the past several years they are moving closer to making massive changes in our way of education, training, post graduate educations and practice that may be irreversible without great expense, and may spell disaster for our profession.
They have not been cautious and thorough in vetting out all the financial, educational and structural issues that may arise in the course of the unfolding of the new plans. These include specifically the Proposed ACGME merger that appears now to be defacto in place without even one “public” disclosure of the plans that will affect every professional in this country.
MOC, MOL, and OCC in its current format is also a part of this assimilation process that is diluting our ability to function as physicians and as specifically as Osteopathic Physicians at a time when the world is going to need our brand of philosophy, decision making, and diagnostic abilities more than ever.
I stand opposed to the nonsense agenda. Osteopathic Medicine doesn’t need to change; our Anti-Osteopathic Leaders must be rid!
Thank you kindly,
Dr. Gina Reghetti, D.O.
