Welcome Osteopathic Medical Students!

Since MU-COM first inaugural class in 2013, the IOA presented students with their white coat at the White Coat Ceremony.  This is IOA’s gift to you as you begin your academic career and join the osteopathic family. At graduation, you will receive another memento from the IOA to mark the occasion. These small gifts, as well as an IOA membership, access to member directory, and other benefits throughout the four years in medical school, are meant to serve as visible reminders that students are an important part of the osteopathic profession.  You are the future of osteopathic medicine!


Indiana Osteopathic Association (IOA) Board of Trustees

The IOA supports medical students in the profession.  The IOA Board of Trustees Bylaws allows for a voting student representative on its Board of Trustees.

To ensure students are represented at state and national business meetings, the IOA and its affiliate, the Indiana Chapter of the American College of Osteopathic Physicians (IN-ACOFP), underwrite some of the cost of sending an Indiana student delegate and/or alternate to state and national meetings.

If you have questions or an interest in getting involved, we invite you to contact the IOA at (317) 926-3009.
