American Osteopathic Association

Advancing the distinctive philosophy and practice of osteopathic medicine


The AOA continually works to expand the public policy impact of osteopathic medicine at the federal and state levels of government by engaging members in advocacy efforts. By combining grassroots advocacy with events like DO Day on Capitol Hill, town hall meetings and health policy forums, engaged AOA members help strengthen the profession's influence with legislators and policy makers.


DO Day on Capitol Hill, set for April 5, 2017, is an exciting opportunity for DOs and osteopathic medical students to come to Washington, D.C., and educate members of Congress and their staff on who DOs are and why osteopathic medicine is so important. View answers to frequently asked questions.

Registration for DO Day 2017 is now closed.
