Eagle Hilton Garden Inn
Eagle, ID



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!

Principles of Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathic Approach – Principles of Osteopathic Medicine

  • The body is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit.
  • The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
  • Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
  • Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.

What is a DO?

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don’t just fight illness, but also help prevent disease. Million of Americans prefer this concerned and compassionate care and have made DOs their physicians for life!

The Osteopath should find health. To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”
