The AOA's multi-phase strategic plan supports three rooftop goals we plan to accomplish by 2025. Here's a closer look:
2025 Rooftop Goals
100% increase in awareness of osteopathic medicine
50% increase in engagement with DOs
100% increase in international awareness of osteopathic medicine
Phase 2: 2017-2019 Priority Areas
Phase 1: 2014-2016 Priority Areas
Identifying and transitioning to more fiscally responsible operations will enable us to boost the quality and efficiency of our services to members. We'll also be able to expand the member services we offer.
The AOA's goals for research include establishing new strategic research partnerships, increasing funding sources for osteopathic research, increasing the impact of excellent osteopathic research studies and expanding research on our profession itself.
Increasing the number and quality of osteopathic graduate medical education (OGME) opportunities is the third pillar of the AOA's strategic plan. Specifically, our goal is a 30% increase in the overall number of osteopathic programs and positions.
We're working to enhance our public policy impact by engaging members in advocacy, empowering patients to be a voice for change, and building strong policy partnerships.
The AOA's multi-year brand awareness campaign aims to answer the question, "What is a DO?" once and for all.
