AAP Section on Osteopathic Pediatricians (SOOPe)
The goals of the section include:
Develop and promote pediatric osteopathic educational opportunities and resources;
Advocate for pediatric osteopathic medicine and DO pediatricians;
Develop and promote resources to support the professional needs of osteopathic pediatricians; and
Support pediatric osteopathic research.
On this website, you'll find some great resources for osteopathic pediatricians and summary of activities we have initiated over the last several years. As one of the largest sections within the AAP, we are fortunate to have such talented members—members interested in promoting osteopathic medicine within the field of pediatrics.
Now that the section is off to a great start, we need your help! We are interested in expanding our CME and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) opportunities, strengthening our advocacy and local chapter involvement, expanding student and resident engagement, providing OMM/OMT resources, and promoting osteopathic research. Please consider joining the section and becoming involved with one of our great subcommittees. The strength of our section lies within its membership—a collection of devoted pediatricians, working collaboratively to strengthen the osteopathic pediatric community. One short email expressing your interest in getting involved with SOOPe may lead to tremendous opportunity for you, our patients and families, our colleagues, and our section. Welcome aboard.
