Inspiration Station: APGO Medical Student Objectives
While the APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives have been around for years, the 10th edition, published in 2014, transformed the resource from a static text to an interactive, online database. In recent years, additional committee-led projects have expanded the Objectives beyond its teacher-focused print version to a multimedia resource for use by both preceptors and learners. Today, the APGO Objectives include a library of animated videos, faculty and student teaching cases, a student logbook and osteopathic objectives related to women’s health, and have come a long way from the original spiral-bound reference book many of us remember.

FOLLOW THE NEW #APGOADAY SERIES ON TWITTER!
#ICYMI (In case you missed it): We started a new Twitter series called #APGOaDay where we feature an APGO resource, program or fun fact about the organization each day, giving you a daily dose of APGO in 140 characters or less. So, in the few minutes you have to scroll through your Twitter feed, you could discover a life-changing teaching resource, find the perfect APGO program to advance your career or learn something new about us. (Did you know we have an office Pomeranian named Symphony, “Simmy” for short?)

And, as always, we’d love to hear how YOU use our resources. Use the #APGOaDay hashtag to tell us how you used an APGO resource today and we’ll retweet it.
