Now accepting applications on a rolling basis -- apply anytime!

The Maine Osteopathic Association, The Maine Chapter of the Academy of Osteopathic Family Physicians & the Maine Osteopathic Educational Foundation have partnered to assist in easing the financial burden for medical residents seeking to certify in AOBFP & become part of the community of osteopathic family physicians in Maine.

MOA/ME ACOFP/MOEF will award grants reimbursing certification expenses to third-year residents in osteopathically recognized programs who are planning to sit for the AOBFP written exam (cognitive) and the OMT Performance Exam (practical). Grants of $1,400 are expected, but will constitute reimbursement of expenses for certification fees and travel following appropriate documentation of expenses.
