This agenda outlines AACOM’s priorities to raise awareness of and develop initiatives to promote osteopathic medical education as osteopathic medical schools continue to grow in number, size, and importance to the U.S. health care system and medical education system. AACOM will actively pursue these goals notwithstanding the very challenging political fiscal environment.
AACOM works with its membership and other associations to present unified health professions positions to policy makers, and monitors legislative and regulatory developments relevant to osteopathic medical education and the osteopathic profession.
AACOM monitors and advocates on federal issues that address or may impact osteopathic medical education and nominates or endorses qualified professionals who can bring an osteopathic perspective to public health initiatives.
AACOM's advocacy press releases provide information on the association's legislative endorsements, federal appointments, and policy statements, among other key topics regarding AACOM's government relations efforts.
AACOM Advocacy Day features Members of Congress, congressional staff and government relations professionals in virtual informational panels presenting on the state of Congress, effective advocacy and AACOM’s public policy priorities. There are also opportunities for participants to communicate with Congress in support of policies and programs critical to osteopathic medical schools, students and physicians.
