2022-2023 OHPI Program is now open.

Application Deadline: Friday, February 11, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET.

The Osteopathic Health Policy Internship (OHPI) Program enables osteopathic medical students to spend eight consecutive weeks working virtually with AACOM’s Government Relations department. To the extent practical, every effort is made to identify the eight week period that best accommodates each student’s schedule. The objective of this unique program is to allow selected student interns to strengthen AACOM GR’s legislative and regulatory advocacy efforts and develop knowledge of federal healthcare and higher education policy. Past interns have gone on to become healthcare policy leaders, such as Policy Committee Chair of the AOGME Residents and Fellows Council, and Vice-Chair of Health Policy at the Emergency Medicine Residents Association.


The program is open to current osteopathic medical students. Selected students (typically OMS-III or OMS-IV) must obtain approval from their colleges of osteopathic medicine to count this internship as an elective rotation and receive academic credit. Women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans are encouraged to apply. 

Application Procedure

Your application will consist of the following:

  • a letter expressing your interest in the OHPI Program (one page maximum)
  • a position paper that includes: a summary of a current healthcare or higher education policy and its impact to osteopathic medical education; an argument on why the policy should change; and recommended steps (one page maximum) 
  • your curriculum vitae 
  • at least three letters of recommendation 

All application packets (letter of interest, position paper, CV, and at least three letters of recommendation) should be submitted electronically to Alexandra Tran, Government Relations Manager, at
