Visiting Professor Program

Bringing Our Experts to Your Campus 

Supporting students is an important piece of the work we do at the ACOI. For a quarter of a century the Visiting Professor Program has brought physicians and experts from every specialty and from all corners of the U.S. to participating campuses to share their experience and passion about medicine with students.

Designed to expose students to the many opportunities available to them, ACOI speakers instruct and lead discussions in their area of clinical expertise. In addition, they present students with practical career information and often are valuable resources for students as they continue their training toward their degree in osteopathic internal medicine.

On average, the ACOI proudly sends 30 or more professors to colleges of medicine throughout the country each year to support student education and to lend a hand in their future success.
