Michigan Osteopathic Association Council of Interns and Residents

The Michigan Osteopathic Association (MOA) values the involvement of interns and residents. The MOA Board of Trustees includes positions on the board for a student and a resident. The MOA Council of Interns and Residents (CIR) offers opportunities to learn from those before you and pass that knowledge on to those who follow. The CIR provides a network of support on issues such as physician wellness, preparing for employment, starting your practice, contract negotiation, healthcare policy and legislative advocacy. 

Meetings for the CIR work around busy schedules and focus on planning educational events such as the MOA Spring Scientific Convention. Joining the CIR provides great benefits without a huge time commitment.
