The WMOA exists to provide education and fraternity
for Osteopathic physicians and other healthcare providers
in order to improve the health of our community.

The Western Michigan Osteopathic Association (WMOA) invites local physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to join our WMOA family.

We are your local access to continuing education, news of federal and state laws’ impact on your practice, and the meeting place of your Osteopathic colleagues and mid-level providers who practice in West Michigan. We encourage you to attend both our CME and non-CME meetings to get to know the people that make up our organization. You will be greeted warmly, and it will be a great opportunity for those “informal consults” that improve the care of our patients. We are at your service to assist you in your successful career in our community.

Prospective members are welcome to attend one dinner meeting with our compliments. Please RSVP. We would love to welcome you!

Our members meet monthly (except for July and August) and we host Spring and Fall Conferences. AOA Category 1-A CME credits are available at the conferences and select dinners. Annual dues of $200 includes dinners, lectures, and available CME credit at monthly meetings as well as discounted registration fees for the Spring and Fall conferences.

Contact us at with questions, or to register to attend a dinner meeting.

Renewing members, please click here to pay dues and conference fees online.

The WMOA is a program of the Osteopathic Foundation of West Michigan.

WMOA Events

Monthly dinner meetings are open to WMOA members only.  Non-members are welcome to attend Spring and Fall conferences with advance registration.  All attendees must RSVP to for each event.

WMOA offers American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Category 1-A credits in conjunction with the Michigan Osteopathic Association (MOA). The MOA is accredited by the AOA to provide osteopathic continuing medical education for physicians. The MOA designates certain programs to receive a specified number of credits and will report CME and specialty credits commensurate with the extent of the physician’s participation in the activity.
