Departments and Committees

The Michigan Osteopathic Association is structured with various departments, with committees under each department. Each Board of Trustee has a specific responsibility when appointed to the Board. The president will assign new Board members to one of five departments following the MOA's Annual Spring Scientific Convention. The departments are Business Affairs, Socio Economics, Education, Membership and Healthcare Technology and Informatics. Issues that fall within a given department head’s responsibility will be assigned to the department head as needs dictate. Most of the requests involve information gathering or identification of MOA members who could serve on ad hoc select committees or coming forth with a recommendation concerning a given issue. Each department has a committee structure to carry out goals and may be used as a resource. 

If you are interested in joining a committee, please use the MOA contact form.
