What are the benefits of a
student membership?



  • The MOA hosts a free luncheon during the year to introduce you to the MOA President.
  • Each year the MOA, in conjunction with MSUCOM,  hosts a DME expo during the MOA Annual Spring Scientific Convention.
  • The MOA hosts a free luncheon presentation in the fall on the importance of legislative advocacy.
  • One of the most coveted and prestigous awards for students is the MOA Outstanding Graduating Senior Award, presented along with a monetary award to one student each year at commencement.
  • The MOA offers members many discounts, including health, dental and vision insurance, car rentals, vacations, cell phones, prescription drug cards, and many more. For a complete list, please visit the MOA Business Partners.

Advocates Communicates
The MOA continues your education through discounted Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs because your education does
not stop upon graduation from medical school.
The MOA advocates for osteopathic medical students and physicians for positive health care legislation at the Capitol in Lansing. Decisions made today will affect your practice tomorrow! The MOA communicates important information to members through UPDATE, our e-newsletter, our award-winning journal, TRIAD, and our website.

Know the Issues

This has been a big year legislatively for physicians, and the Michigan Osteopathic Association has been in the thick of several key issues at the State Capitol. Here’s a run-down of what happened this year, why it happened and what it means for member physicians. Please visit Issues and Legislation to learn more.
