President's Message

Welcome to 2016!

By Carl Backes, DO, FACOP, FAAP
ACOP President

Tami Hendriksz
Carl Backes, DO, FACOP, FAAP

It will be a busy but hopefully successful year for all DO pediatricians due to the outstanding growth of our profession. According to the 2015 Osteopathic Medical Profession Report, the number of DOs in the United States stands at nearly 97,000, which is a 25% growth every five years since 1985. I outlined in the spring PULSE what needs to be done; in this issue, I will address our progress.

Future Plans

Truthfully, these constants may seem overwhelming to a young physician, but the essence of being a physician is no different now than it was for me 40 years ago.

I want to invite all DO pediatricians to attend the conference in Phoenix on April 14-17, 2016. I will be giving an update on our ACGME SAS progress during the ACOP Business Meeting lunch. Thank you for your support.
