Timothy J. Moser, DO, Elected Oklahoma Osteopathic Association President

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Osteopathic Association inducted Timothy J. Moser, DO, FACOFP as the 2019-2020 president on April 27 at its 119th Annual Convention at the Embassy Suites Norman Hotel and Conference Center in Norman, Oklahoma.

Dr. Moser received his medical degree from the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and has diligently served on the OOA Board.  Additionally, he is an active member of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. Specializing in Family Practice, he has been serving his patients and the community for more than 20 years.   Dr. Moser and his wife, Regina, live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. 

During his inaugural address, Dr. Moser reinforced the convention’s “advocacy” theme by calling on the association’s members to work together for the profession, speak to their State Representatives, and help guide future talent in school and residency programs. Advocating for sensible opioid reforms and protecting osteopathic physicians’ scope of practice will be paramount to him during his time as the OOA President.  Dr. Moser’s speech was met with resounding applause and a standing ovation from members of the association, family, friends, and special guest Ronald R. Burns, DO, president-elect of the American Osteopathic Association.

The Oklahoma Osteopathic Association serves more than 2,300 members, including practicing physicians, residents, interns, osteopathic medical students and retired physicians. Doctors of osteopathic medicine, or DOs, practice in 69 of the state’s 77 counties and in 147 Oklahoma communities. Oklahoma DOs practice in all areas of medicine from cardiology to sports medicine to radiology.

DOs complete four years of medical training and continue their education in postgraduate internships and residencies. As complete physicians, DOs are able to prescribe medication and perform surgery. In addition, DOs have added training in osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM), a hands-on treatment tool they can use to diagnose and treat injuries or illnesses. OMM can be used in conjunction with, and sometimes in place of, medication or surgery to restore mobility and function.
