On May 7, 2017, the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MUCOM), the first medical school to open in Indiana in over one hundred years, graduated its first class and established a cohort of MUCOM alumni.

A high priority of the IOA over the last years was restructuring of its foundation, the Motyka Dannin Osteopathic Educational Foundation (Motyka Dannin Foundation). With the reorganization, we set a goal of raising $100,000 by May of 2017 and awarding our first forgivable loan in the amount of $10,000 the same year. We achieved that goal and selected our first recipient. Adam Davis is a second year student at the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Our aspiration is to become the premier scholarship opportunity for Indiana’s osteopathic medical students and to ensure our top notch students continue to practice in Indiana. Please consider a contribution as one of your annual donations. Donation Form. Donate Stock Shares. Donate Online.

  • December 1, 2017: Single GME Accreditation System: The American Osteopathic Association (AOA), American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) are currently transitioning to a single accreditation system for graduate medical education in the U.S. When fully implemented in July 2020, the new system will allow graduates of osteopathic and allopathic medical schools to complete their residency and/or fellowship education in ACGME-accredited programs and demonstrate achievement of common milestones and competencies. Through osteopathic-focused residency programs, the new system will recognize the unique principles and practices of the osteopathic medical profession and its contributions to health care. The AOA remains dedicated to helping its members navigate the transition as it progresses. View detailed updates on accreditation processes and the latest information for students & residents and educational stakeholders.  For more information, the ACGME has updated its online Single GME Accreditation System section to provide greater ease of access to news items, important updates and critical resources to osteopathic programs pursuing ACGME accreditation.

  • November 1, 2017: The Indiana POST Program is a new advance care planning tool that helps ensure treatment preferences are honored. It is designed for patients with serious illness. Preferences for life sustaining treatments including resuscitation, medical interventions (e.g., comfort care, hospitalization, intubation, mechanical ventilation), antibiotics, and artificial nutrition are documented as medical orders on the POST form. It must be reviewed and signed by a physician to be activated. This form transfers throughout the health care system and the orders are valid in all settings. A new Indiana POST Video is now available for your use at This 9 minute video is appropriate for health care providers as well as patients and families. Please feel free to share it broadly and incorporate it into your educational offerings.
