About the Columbus Osteopathic AssociationCOA Logo

This professional society of osteopathic physicians has represented central Ohio DOs for more than 60 years. Columbus Osteopathic Association (COA) members deliver health care to Ohioans in a 19-county area from Upper Sandusky to Portsmouth. As the largest local affiliate of the Ohio Osteopathic Association, COA is the only local osteopathic entity in this area. This distinction strengthens our commitment to promote the osteopathic profession at every level from osteopathic medical student to resident to practicing physician.

The COA covers the following counties: Ashland, Crawford, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Hocking, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Perry, Pickaway, Richland, Ross, Scioto, Union, and Wyandot.

LEADERSHIP

COA is governed by an Executive Council consisting of President, President-Elect, VP, Secretary-Treasurer, Immediate Past President, State Trustee (who represents the COA on the Ohio Osteopathic Association Board), and three Council Members who each serve a three-year term. Election is at the COA Annual Meeting. Medical students and residents serve on the Council by invitation.

The Council oversees the activities of the organization and strives to meet the mission of the organization. Per COA Bylaws, the mission is to exchange and disseminate information among members as to the improvements and advancements in the field of medicine and surgery; encourage mutual understanding and cooperation between members and agencies of the local, state and federal government dealing with health and welfare; support the growth and development of osteopathic schools of medicine, its organizations at national, state and local levels, its hospitals and colleges; and maintain and promote the highest moral and ethical standards in the practice of osteopathic medicine.

See the list of past COA presidents.

AWARDS

Each year, COA presents two awards to recognize individuals who have shown outstanding accomplishments in personal, scientific, community and professional affairs. Recipients promote the art and science of osteopathic medicine, embody the values of the profession through leadership and service to the public and the profession, and bring a sense of pride to the profession.
