Take part in your future – The quote “strength in numbers” most definitely applies to the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association (AOMA). Only through a combined effort of osteopathic medical professionals can our Association continue to exert an influence within the local legislative forums and maintain our goals of promoting the osteopathic medical profession to the public, and to support access to high-quality, cost effective health care for all Arizona.

Serving your needs – AOMA serves the needs of the osteopathic physicians providing professional camaraderie, education, and a prominent voice in the political arena. Through the AOMA, the diverse members of the osteopathic community are united into a dynamic organization with the power and expertise to confront and obtain solutions to a multitude of medical-related issues. AOMA is a statewide association and as a member you have access to a broad range of educational programs, publications and conferences.

Protecting your profession – On your behalf, AOMA provides effective legislative lobbying at the local, state and national levels. Over the years AOMA has gained recognition for the osteopathic community and defeated legislation and regulations detrimental to the medical industry. Our Legislative Affairs Committee, Executive Director, and lobbyist understand the legislative environment and they know what it takes to get our voice heard. Many of our members have the opportunity to serve on Advisory Boards, Task Forces, and Councils providing a critical role in improving osteopathic opportunities and influencing public policy and opinion.
