The Training in Policy Studies (TIPS) program is a policy-based program, generously funded by the American Osteopathic Foundation, that provides an understanding of current healthcare policy issues while also facilitating leadership opportunities.

Sessions will focus on physician payment models, healthcare reform, social determinants of health, the opioid epidemic, and current public health issues. Participants will gain experience in writing policy briefs and white papers, oral testimony, media training, and more.

This program serves as an initial leadership and policy program for residents wishing to become more active within the osteopathic profession. TIPS fellows have gone on to serve in leadership and policy development roles within and outside the osteopathic community. Some have also continued their policy training by participating in the Health Policy Fellowship program, producing over 20 deans and College of Osteopathic Medicine presidents.
