American Osteopathic Association Research Grants
The AOA recognizes the value of all areas of biomedical research; however, the resources and facilities of the profession are limited, and direct research funding must focus on those areas of research that investigate the unique aspects of osteopathic medicine. The breadth of this research focus may include but is not limited to:
Mechanisms of Action of OMM/OMT
Clinical Efficacy of OMM/OMT
Inter- and Intra-rater reliability of palpatory assessment
Cost effectiveness of osteopathic health care
Osteopathic physician and patient interactions
Methods of teaching palpation and OMM/OMT
This Program is partially funded by the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation.
Grant applications are accepted on an annual basis and have a submission deadline of December 8.
The award is for up to $50,000 per year. Investigators should not expect to be funded for more than two years on a single project.
