The Iowa ACOFP chapter is a network of Iowa Osteopathic Family Physicians dedicated to providing expert advice and service.
Iowa ACOFP actively represents the rights and interests of Osteopathic Family Physicians and helps preserve the freedom to provide the best care to their patients.
The Iowa ACOFP chapter works with its members to provide all of the resources possible to receive the latest information on practical and technical advances in osteopathic family medical practice, continuing medical education to provide for continued learning opportunities, and a wide variety of specific member services designed to help our members who have chosen to specialize in family practice and osteopathic manipulative treatment.
An osteopathic family physician treats you, the whole person, not just a disease or its symptoms. They provide disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment strategies to your and your entire family from infancy throughout your entire life. Because this focus promotes an appreciation for the interrelationship between body, mind and spirit, they can provide you with the most holistic and comprehensive family medical care available.
Their appreciation of this interconnected relationship allows osteopathic family physicians the unique ability to diagnose and effectively treat conditions that sometimes elude non-osteopathic medical professionals.
The mission of the Iowa Chapter of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians is to promote excellence in the practice and education of osteopathic family physicians and students.
