Other abstracts are evaluations describing a change to a current way of doing things that results in better outcomes, or an approach to a challenge faced in osteopathic medical education. These evaluations may be reported to stakeholders as information for decision making.

Research abstracts are grounded in scientific theory and apply to or build upon previous research. The investigation produces generalizable knowledge to something that could be applied outside of a single institution with an aim to publish or publicize the data.
