Applications open for editorial advisory board member positions with The DO for 2023

The DO is seeking DOs, residents and osteopathic medical students to serve on its volunteer advisory board.


The AOA’s The DO provides vital health care information and news for the osteopathic physician and medical student. The DO covers topics relevant throughout each stage of medical training and career, from med student to retiree. The DO is written by DOs, for DOs.

Currently an online publication, The DO has been continuously published since 1960. Recently, the publication has been recognized with awards and honorable mentions from PR News, Association Media and Publishing and the American Society of Association Executives.

To ensure that The DO is providing cutting-edge content that is relevant to physicians and medical students, the AOA revamped The DO in 2022, bringing in a DO Editor In Chief and an Editorial Advisory Board composed of DOs and osteopathic medical students.
