Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association, Representing Arizona D.O.’s for Eighty Years
The purpose of this Association “shall be to promote the Osteopathic Medical Profession to its members and to the public, and to support access to high-quality, cost effective healthcare for all Arizona.”
The Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association (AOMA) represents and speaks for the osteopathic profession in Arizona and is your voice in the legislature.
Our public relations program presents the story of osteopathic medicine to the people of Arizona. By communicating with government officials and consumers, we create a better understanding of our profession and improve the professional climate in which we all must practice.
Working together through committees, we form a network of voluntary efforts in all phases of health care.
Joining together through committees, we represent an expanse of knowledge and ideas as broad as those of our combined membership and as diversified as the many specialties we represent.
