Description

The American Osteopathic Association's Training in Policy Studies (TIPS) program is a policy-based programgenerously funded by the American Osteopathic Foundation, that provides an understanding of current health care policy issues while also facilitating leadership opportunities.

Sessions will focus on physician payment models, health care reform, social determinants of health, the opioid epidemic and current public health issues. Participants will gain experience in writing policy briefs and white papers, oral testimony, media training and more.

This program serves as an initial leadership and policy program for residents wishing to become more active within the osteopathic profession. TIPS fellows have gone on to serve in leadership and policy development roles both within and outside of the osteopathic community. Some have also continued their policy training by participating in the Health Policy Fellowship program, which has produced over 20 deans and college of osteopathic medicine presidents.

1) An updated resume or CV uploaded to the application page 2) A 250-500 word statement of purpose explaining why you hope to join the program3) A writing sample 4) TIPS recommendation form completed by a reference who is familiar with your interest and/or involvement in policy

We encourage you to make sure these items are ready before beginning the application. You will be able to add recommenders in the online portal. Decisions will be issued in early June, and the first meeting will take place September 21-22 at OMED. While not necessary during the application process, selected candidates must become AOA members at the resident level by August 1 in order to participate.
