Welcome to LOMA!

The Louisiana Osteopathic Medical Association

LOMA's 16th Annual Convention will be “LIVE” in New Orleans, LA, August 27-30!!! NOLA’s reopening permits live meetings under its social distancing requirements. Royal Sonesta Hotel has strict guidelines for LOMA’s meeting spaces, meals, exhibits, AV, lodging, and all common spaces. Aware of our providers’ evolving work-related travel abilities, LOMA designed attendance options to provide a flexible choice for each registrant. Each registrant has the choice to attend the live meeting, to view identical pre-recorded lectures online on-demand, or to participate by combination of the two options. This facilitates program completion of all registrants given the uncertainty and likelihood of possible change in a registrant’s travel plans. The entire CME program will be pre-recorded and available on-demand from August 27-September 20. 


Our Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine - Louisiana is now in operation on the University of Louisiana - Monroe campus. Its operation is a huge stimulus to Louisiana’s osteopathic future as Its mission will address the physician shortage in Louisiana which currently ranks #39 in the US for per capita primary care physicians. And 81% of Louisiana has been designated a Health Professional Shortage Area by the Louisiana Department of Health. VCOM’s overall goal addresses the primary care shortages throughout the Southeastern US where they are most needed. The Inaugural Class of 2024 began its virtual classes on July 13!  Click here: https://www.vcom.edu/locations/louisiana to view the amazing campus, read additional information, and take a Virtual Campus Tour
