The American Osteopathic College of Anesthesiologists (AOCA) is a national membership organization that promotes the interests of osteopathic anesthesiologists by improving the quality of training, education, and patient care as it relates to anesthesia and pain management.

Osteopathic medicine emphasizes the "whole person" approach to patient care. Osteopathic physicians (DO’s) receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system and embrace a philosophy of health rather than simply treating disease.

The American College of Osteopathic Anesthesiologists exists to:

  • Support quality anesthesia and pain management medical care
  • Promote the interests of osteopathic anesthesiologists
  • Support development and implementation of osteopathic anesthesia and pain management medical education
  • Advance the philosophy and practice of osteopathic medicine through a system of quality and cost-effective healthcare in a distinct, unified profession
