A friend asked me to look at their resume. I saw this sentence:
Ensured that referring physicians are informed on abnormalities and suggestions via letters
Is on the correct word to use, or is of? Of sounds right to me, but I'm not sure.

The phrasal verb inform on does exist:
Inform on someone: to give information to the police or somebody in authority about the illegal activities of somebody - I will inform them on you!
However, it doesn't exactly fit into the sentence you originally posted. Physicians can't be informed on something. They might be informed on someone, but not something. To me, it seems incorrect.
'Of' and 'about' are both acceptable prepositions for the verb 'inform':
Please inform us of any changes of address.
The leaflet informs customers about healthy eating.
He went to inform them of his decision.
