The mission of the American Academy of Osteopathy is to teach, advocate and research the science, art and philosophy of osteopathic medicine, emphasizing the integration of osteopathic principles, practice and manipulative treatment in patient care.

In March 2015, the AAO's Board of Governors adopted the following vision statement: All patients are aware of and have access to osteopathic medical care and osteopathic manipulative medicine for optimal health.

RAAO Plans 
The new team has met and are starting to hit the ground running with projects for this year! An important goal the RAAO has this year is to provide an easy-to-access and more structured repository of educational resources for our members. We hope we can provide resources on a wide variety of topics relevant to our osteopathic residents – from articles reviewing osteopathic practices in certain pathologies to lectures on osteopathic approaches in specific settings.  

Do you have any specific things you’d like to see in a resident resource library? We would love to hear from you! Our goal is to make sure this information is easily accessible and robust enough to help residents during their training, and to provide a way for residents to “bring home” osteopathic education to their programs – so we want to make sure what we build is for and by residents!  
Please shoot an email over to Leah (National Coordinator)  [email protected] and/or Gagandeep (Vice Chair[email protected]
