Awards & Leadership

Robert A. Cain, DO, AACOM President and CEO, cited for his work maintaining osteopathic distinctiveness and student advocacy, was one of three leaders in osteopathic medicine to receive a prestigious American Osteopathic Association (AOA) presidential citation this year.

“We are excited to have Dr. Johnson continue to lead us in this new role and advance medical training, technology, funding and research at LUCOM. His deep desire to serve Christ, and others above self, makes him the right leader for LUCOM,” says Liberty Provost and Chief Academic Officer Scott Hicks, PhD.

AACOM Councils & Groups

The Task Force has created resources spanning the topics of professional standards and ethics. Resources include model policies to be used as template documents for member colleges, curricular resources and instructional videos.
