Integrating the Osteopathic Approach in Medicine



As the official website of the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association, we

provide members with timely updates about important issues in medicine.  IOPA provides a wide variety of Category 1A CME opportunities (including hands-on workshops) in Idaho each year.  We also work closely with state and national organizations (such as the AOA, AMA, ACGME and medical schools) to protect the interests of physicians in Idaho.



Please JOIN IOPA so that we can continue to integrate the osteopathic approach in Idaho and support our physician community!

IOPA wants to extend congratulations to Suzanne Fredrick, Executive Director of the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association for being selected as the 2022 recipient of the American Osteopathic Association's Bob E. Jones CAE Award in recognition of her leadership and tremendous contributions toward advancing osteopathic medicine!

"Suzanne has dedicated the last 13 years of her distinguished healthcare career working to advance the osteopathic medical profession in multiple communities. As the Executive Director of the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association since 2008 and the Kentucky OsteopathicMedical Association since 2017, she has expertly represented the interests of osteopathic physicians, residents, and students through exceptional efforts to ensure patients can access high quality osteopathic medical care. Her involvement in the Association of Osteopathic State Executive Directors (AOSED) ensured affiliate representation on various AOA Bureaus, Councils, and Committees, including the AOA’s Bureaus of Affiliate Relations, Business Affairs, and Osteopathic Education. Her leadership with AOSED includes serving as President (2017-2018) and extending her terms following the passing of the former AOSED President Pete Wertheim. Her knowledge of state political environmental issues made her instrumental in the founding and development of the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2016. In addition, she has dedicated her time to philanthropic efforts, including physician recruitment work in South Africa. Her impact on the osteopathic profession can be measured in the physicians and state affiliate executives she has engaged and mentored over the course of her career."

Suzie was recognized during the AOA House of Delegates Annual Meeting in July  for this well-deserved recognition.
