Strength in numbers: Join us March 31 for DO Day on Capitol Hill Register today!
Apply now for the AOA’s Training in Policy Studies (TIPS) Fellowship, a program designed to prepare the next generation of leaders in health policy.
The American Osteopathic Foundation fully funded this one year program, offered at no cost to participants. The program provides residents with an understanding of current health policy issues and helps them build skills necessary to speak up on behalf of their patients and tackle complex public health challenges through policy.
Participants will get to engage with experts in the field of health policy, build their writing skills, and take part in exciting leadership opportunities.
TIPS participants attend seven fellowship sessions, including four in-person events, throughout the year to discuss important health policy topics such as physician payment models, the opioid epidemic, comparative effectiveness research and how the results of the 2020 elections will influence health care policy.
Fellows will have transportation and one night of lodging covered to attend the 2019 and 2020 OMED conferences, LEAD Conference, and DO Day on Capitol Hill. The AOA will cover costs related to travel for the in-person meetings in accordance to its travel policy.
All osteopathic physicians who have completed one year of postgraduate training and remain in an active AOA- or ACGME-accredited training program are encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is on August 25th. More information, including the 2018/2019 agenda and 2019/2020 application, can be found on the TIPS webpage.
