AOF Outstanding Resident of the Year Award

Deadline: No longer accepting nominations for 2020

$5,000 Scholarship

Residents are the future leaders of the osteopathic profession, with some going on to become national and world leaders in health care or research.


The Outstanding Resident of the Year (OROTY) Award was established to recognize and honor outstanding residents who embody a great spirit of altruism and whose combination of clinical promise, leadership, dedication and commitment to osteopathic patient-centered care, separate them from others.

In partnership with the specialty societies, the AOF’s Outstanding Resident of the Year Award is given annually to honor and co-recognize outstanding residents and acknowledge professional excellence.
