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 Osteopathic College of Anesthesiologists exists to:

  • Build a diverse, dynamic, and engaged membership which sustains the growth and reflects the values of the College 
  • Equip physician anesthesiologists with evidence-based content and professional development tools to grow, enhance, and advance their careers 
  • Serve as a community of key and emerging leaders who advance osteopathic anesthesiology and advocate on behalf of physician anesthesiologists and their patients 
  • Develop the culture and leadership of the College’s board and volunteer members to become strategic, innovative, and diverse 

The Future of the College
