New Physician Resources


Resources for New Physicians in Practice

​ Under the guidance of the AOA Department of Professional Affairs, the Council of New Physicians in Practice (CNPP) acts as a resource center for all doctors of osteopathic medicine in their early years of practice.

The Council’s goals include:

  • Identifying and addressing the unique needs and views of new physicians.

  • Reaching out to osteopathic medical student, intern and resident organizations to encourage early involvement in new physician issues.

  • Increasing the level of involvement of new physicians in local, state and national medical organizations.

  • Bringing together the community of new osteopathic physicians and instilling in them a sense of unity and loyalty to the osteopathic profession that will stay with them throughout their career.

  • Promoting the professional and personal development of new physicians.

The AOA considers a “new physician in practice” as one who completed his or her postdoctoral training within the last five years or graduated from a college of osteopathic medicine approved by the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation within the last 10 years.
