Funding is awarded to researchers conducting 18-month projects rooted in osteopathic principles and practice.
The AOA has identified research to help focus funding opportunities and develop collaborative research studies. These research studies should reflect the concept that while OMM/OMT remains a strong tradition of the osteopathic profession, osteopathic medicine encompasses a broader philosophy that includes patient-centered care, empathy, and the mind/body/spirit approach. The osteopathic philosophy embraces an approach that, while seeking and promoting health, also addresses disease states and the spectrum of patient care (e.g., primary, secondary, and tertiary).
