LOMA successfully worked to end licensing discrimination against LA DOs in January 2005.  Louisiana was the 50th state to grant DO licensing parity.  LOMA has since benefited Louisiana's small but growing osteopathic profession.  LOMA serves YOU and all our future LA DOs.  A huge stimulus to our development is the new VCOM-LA in Monroe.  Our inaugural Class of 2024 begins class on July 13!  Get involved, help us grow, and be a part of Louisiana's osteopathic future!                  JOIN LOMA TODAY! more
