AOA was established to promote public health, encourage scientific research, and maintain and improve standards of medical education in osteopathic colleges. Among its activities, AOA compiles the number of osteopathic physicians (doctors of osteopathic medicine or D.O.s); the number of active D.O.s by sex, age, specialty, and geography (50 states and the District of Columbia); and the number of osteopathic medical students, by selected characteristics.
