ACOS Celebrates 90th Anniversary

January 26, 2017

Today, we celebrate 90 years of remarkable progress and service to the profession. The efforts and tireless devotion of our founders and dedicated volunteers have raised training standards, improved the quality of patient care, and given osteopathic physicians a respected voice. With nearly 5,500 members at present, we look ahead inspired for what we will accomplish together in the future as we continue to lead and advocate for our profession.


As our membership continues to grow, new projects and initiatives are developing rapidly. This has led us to need more staff and additional space. We will be relocating in June to expand our headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia! As we get closer to the move, we will share the new address and updated contact information. Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
