Join the Auxiliary

No one gets by on his or her own—especially during osteopathic medical school and residency—which is why the Auxiliary to the ACOFP was formed. Spouses and significant others of osteopathic physicians have joined together with a mission to support the family and those just starting out in family medicine. To date, about 3,200 people are actively participating in the Auxiliary by raising money through dues, drawings, sponsorships and direct donations.

The mission of the Auxiliary to the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (AACOFP) is to promote and support the ACOFP by enhancing family, student and resident engagement. Through these efforts we hope to foster a sense of belonging within the Osteopathic Family Medicine Community.
