Welcome to the
Indiana Osteopathic Association
The Indiana Osteopathic Association (IOA) is the only organization dedicated to improving the health of all Hoosiers and to making Indiana the best possible place to practice osteopathic medicine.
Active membership is graduated for physicians in their early years of practice. Interested in joining? Apply today. Not sure if you are a member? Send an e-mail message or call us at (800) 942-0501.
All members will receive the Hoosier D.O. and other publications. The Hoosier D.O., however, is no longer snail mailed. Instead it is available in the members only section of our website (login required) or in digital version (correct e-mail address required). You also will receive mailings about Board Actions and other important issues. Not receiving these? Please get in touch with us to verify that your information is up-to-date.
As evidenced during a groundbreaking and naming ceremony on August 24, 2011, the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine is continuing to make progress toward a planned opening in August 2013. Read more.
Mark your calendars now and plan to attend our 116th Annual Convention to be held May 3 - 5, 2013, at the Sheraton Hotel at Keystone Crossing, in Indianapolis. Please note that on Thursday, May 2, the Indiana Academy of Osteopathy is offering an optional preconference OMT workshop for an additional fee. Participation is limited so register early.

On December 1, 2010, Erin Wernert began her tenure as the new Executive Director of the Indiana Osteopathic Association (IOA). Mike Claphan officially retired on January 1, 2011, after 18 years of faithful service to Indiana’s osteopathic physicians. Erin is a graduate of the University of Connecticut with a double major in political science and history. She recently moved to Indiana after 11 years working in Washington, D.C. She began her career on Capitol Hill working for the Committee on Ways and Means in the U.S. House of Representatives. Erin also spent ten years working for the government affairs departments of the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery. Working and advocating for the physician community remains to be her passion, and she is thrilled to be working for the IOA. Erin is married to John Wernert, M.D. and is expecting her first child in May 2011.
