Craig Phelps, D.O., FAOASM
AOMA President 2013 - 2014
Welcome to the AOMA website. We invite you to preview our Association's information and if you have any questions about membership please call the AOMA office at (602) 266-6699. I have been a member of AOMA for over 10 years and value what the Association does for osteopathic medicine and osteopathic physicians.
Take part in your future - The quote "strength in numbers" was never more true than when applied to associations. The Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association (AOMA) is no exception. Only through a combined effort of osteopathic medical professionals can our Association continue to exert an influence within the local legislative forums and maintain our goals of promoting the Osteopathic Medical Profession to the public, and to support access to high-quality, cost effective health care for all Arizona.
Serving your needs - For more than 84 years, AOMA has served the needs of the osteopathic physicians providing professional camaraderie, education and a prominent voice in the political arena. Through the AOMA, the diverse members of the osteopathic community are united into a dynamic organization with the power and expertise to confront and obtain solutions to a multitude of medical-related issues. AOMA is a statewide association and as a member you have access to a broad range of educational programs, publications and conferences. Membership Business Partners & Services has a listing of the community partners we have developed specifically for your needs.
Protecting your profession - Legislative Advocacy - On your behalf, AOMA provides effective legislative lobbying at the local, state and national levels. Over the years AOMA has gained recognition for the osteopathic community and defeated legislation and regulations detrimental to the medical industry. Our Legislative Review Committee, Executive Director and Lobbyist understand the legislative environment and they know what it takes to get our voice heard. Many of our members have the opportunity to serve on Advisory Boards, Task Forces and Councils providing a critical role in improving osteopathic opportunities and influencing public policy and opinion.
Keeping you informed - Access to industry information is vital to the success of your practice. AOMA will keep you informed about the ever-changing issues in the medical profession. With your membership you receive the AOMA Digest, providing the health care community with information on matters of general interest and trends in the profession, reports on legislative matters, announcements of meetings and reports on new rules and regulations governing the practice of osteopathic medicine in Arizona. The AOMA DO Dashboard is circulated throughout the year providing timely announcements, CME information and public health alerts. The annual AOMA Membership Directory is a comprehensive membership guide and listing that provides helpful information.
Providing for your professional development - Professional development is provided with continuing medical education at the AOMA Annual Convention and the Fall Seminar, with 1-A category topics covering a broad spectrum of medical knowledge presented by the most qualified physicians.
