NOM Week

130 years of distinctiveness

Join the NOM Week celebration!

Show the world you are #DOProud by spotlighting the osteopathic profession during National Osteopathic Medicine Week.

Happy National Osteopathic Medicine (NOM) Week! This year’s observance, set for April 18-24, is dedicated to celebrating the osteopathic medical profession and raising awareness about the distinctiveness of osteopathic medicine. The event brings together nearly 135,000 osteopathic physicians and 34,000 osteopathic medical students from across the country with a common goal: celebrating and sharing the unique body, mind, spirit approach DOs bring to health care.

This year marks 130 years since osteopathic medicine was founded the country’s first osteopathic medical school opened in 1892. Today, the osteopathic profession continues to chart record-breaking growth and expansion with each passing year. DOs account for approximately 11.5% of all physicians in the United States and one quarter of all medical school graduates. Moreover, DOs hold some of the most prominent positions in medicine, including overseeing care for the President of the United States, the NASA medical team, Olympic athletes and many who serve in the uniformed services.

Celebrating 130 years

In honor of 130 years of osteopathic distinctiveness, we’ll be sharing historic milestones and artifacts on social media and The DO as part of our NOM Week celebration. Follow #NOMWeek on social media to accompany us on a journey through the history of osteopathic medicine.

Thank a DO!
