Research opportunities for resident physicians, fellows and osteopathic medical students

Promote the osteopathic approach to care through AOA-funded research.

Resident physicians, fellows and osteopathic medical students can apply for AOA grant funding to support projects that address one of the AOA’s five research focus areas. Since 2016, the AOA has awarded more than $3 million in grants for osteopathic research.

Learn more about projects funded by the AOA’s research grant program, and check back on Nov. 1, 2019, for information on how to submit your research for funding in the 2020 grant program.

The 2019 grant program is closed. Fellows and resident physicians applied for up to $20,000 in funding for 18-month studies. The AOA supports the development of research projects grounded in osteopathic medicine that:

  • Offers promising potential to impact both individual patient outcomes and evidence-based medicine.
  • Facilitates collaboration within and outside the osteopathic community.
  • Enhances the visibility of the osteopathic profession.

Medical students applied for up to $5,000 in funding for a 6- to 12-month study tied to an existing osteopathic research project.
