Canadian Osteopathic Association
The Canadian Osteopathic Association (COA) is a professional association of osteopathic physicians in Canada. The COA has partnered with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine to increase the number of osteopathic physicians practicing in Canada.
The COA was established in 1926. In 2011, the COA launched the Canadian Osteopathic Medical Student Organization (COMSO).
Membership in the COA requires a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from a College of Osteopathic Medicine in the United States accredited by the American Osteopathic Association. There are currently no colleges of osteopathic medicine in Canada.
