For $5.54 a week (less than the price of a large specialty coffee at your favorite coffee shop) or just 79 cents a day (less than the cost of a bottle of water), you can become a member of the professional specialty organization dedicated to you and osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM).
The AAO offers the following membership categories (also see residents' membership information):
The AAO's membership year extends from Aug. 1 through July 31. Prorated memberships are not available at this time.
Members who did not graduate from an accredited U.S. osteopathic medical college must be sponsored by an osteopathic physician who is a member of the AAO.
On Saturday, July 21, the AAO was one of four recipients of the American Osteopathic Association’s 2019 STARs (Strategic Team Award and Recognition) for its dedication to advancing osteopathic medicine. The STARs recognize contributions made by state, specialty and regional affiliates, colleges of osteopathic medicine, osteopathic postdoctoral training institutions (OPTIs), and nonpractice affiliates that have advanced the osteopathic profession. The award honors programs and activities that align with the initiatives in the AOA’s strategic plan.
