President's Welcome

Melanie White, D.O.


The American Osteopathic College of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AOCPMR) is dedicated to promoting an inclusive, family-like environment where camaraderie between our student, resident, fellow, and attending members is highly valued. We welcome the opportunity to learn from the diverse experiences of both our osteopathic and allopathic members in order to strengthen and shape our profession for the future. With our osteopathic roots at the forefront, we are committed to providing exceptional care to our patients as well as leadership and value to our profession through education and advocacy.

Residents and fellows represent the future of AOCPMR and our field. As a resident council, our primary goal is to provide valuable tools to our membership that will ensure success in their training programs and future careers. Our in-training members have access to an extensive mentorship network, educational resources including our OMT Video Series, membership forums with available job postings, a comprehensive PM&R specific fellowship database, and funding for educational and community service events through Project Make-It-Happen.
