Happy National Osteopathic Medicine (NOM) Week! This year’s observance of NOM Week takes on special significance as we recognize and honor the bravery, strength and resilience of the thousands of DOs who are responding on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s never been a greater time to take pride in being a DO.

Throughout the week, we’ll be exploring the theme “We Are Osteopathic Medicine” through photos, videos and stories shared by the entire osteopathic community, including DOs, osteopathic medical students, researchers, educators and supporters. We’ll also be celebrating news of record-breaking growth in the profession, documented by the recent release of the annual Osteopathic Medical Profession Report.

Help us spread the word! There are four ways you can celebrate NOM Week and help share the story of what it means to be an osteopathic physician:


  • Share a photo or video that exemplifies the NOM Week theme "We Are Osteopathic Medicine"

    Whether you're on the front lines of COVID-19, an osteopathic medical student learning to provide OMT or a supporter helping advocate for the osteopathic profession, we want to hear your story. Use #NOMWeek on social media or submit via our Tell Your Story portal, and we'll share your submissions in a compilation video to be shared later in the week.

  • Post a NOM Week social media graphic

    Download and share a NOM Week social media graphic to post on your social channels. Or download a ZOOM-compatible background to show your osteopathic pride during remote meetings. Download graphics.

  • Spread the word about our growing profession

    Across our social channels and websites, we'll provide snapshots of who DOs are, where they practice and how they improve the lives of their patients. Watch for updates and share them with your community to raise awareness of osteopathic medicine.

  • Tell us how you're celebrating

    Let us know how your osteopathic medical school or affiliate group is celebrating. Drop us a note at pr@osteopathic.org or tag us on social media using @AOAforDOs.
