Greetings Residents And General Medical Officers!

My name is Crystal Lafluer, and I am the 2023-2024 Post-Graduate/Resident representative for the Association of Military Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (AMOPS).

Join AMOPS and represent your fellow military medical professionals at national levels of osteopathic leadership (House of Delegates, AOA, OMED, etc). We offer both medical education, professional and military career guidance that you cannot receive elsewhere. Additionally, it is your chance to give back to support to our medical student members, junior residents or GMOs, and recruit senior leadership to advocate for the younger generations of osteopathic medical officers. 

Resident membership for 3 years is just $150 – become a member of RAMOPS
