American Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners

FIRST IN HISTORY!

American Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (AAOMP)
Council on Osteopathic Manual Practice Education (USA) (COMPE)
American Osteopathic Manual Practice Examining Board (AOMPEB)

Osteopathic manual practitioner, Curtis M Wildes, PES, CSCS, MBA, MSATC, DO (Spain) is the first president of the newly formed American Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (AAOMP). This is the first time in history our profession now has an association in the states.

AAOMP is affiliated with the International Osteopathic Association (IOA) and follows its mandate and policies. AAOMP will also have two other affiliated organizations, the Council on Osteopathic Manual Practice Education (USA) which will be in charge of accrediting schools offering osteopathic manual practice education in US and the American Osteopathic Manual Practice Examining Board which will be in charge of administering board exams for license purposes.

Dr. Wildes is a graduate of the doctor of osteopathy (DO) program of the National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) as well a member of the Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA).

In the States the term osteopathic manual practice is used instead of osteopathy as not to confuse the American public there as they generally associate osteopathy with osteopathic physicians who work as medical doctors.

AAOMP website will be set up soon.
