AOA Mentor Recognition Program
The AOA Mentor Recognition Program was developed to honor DOs who help shape the future of the osteopathic medical profession through their involvement with osteopathic medical students and new physicians in practice. Through their service, mentors bring a sense of pride to the profession and promote the art and science of osteopathic medicine.
The finalist is selected by the mentor of the year selection committee comprised of student, resident and new physician representatives. The finalist is honored during a ceremony at OMED. The AOA Mentor Recognition Program enables members of the osteopathic family to nominate the mentor who has had a profound impact on their career. Nominations are accepted year-round from students, interns, residents, DOs, AOA Affiliates, or any other member of the osteopathic professional family and may be submitted online. The nominee must be a member of the AOA.
