The Aquifer DO Task Force will bring the voice, interests, and experiences of the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine educators to Aquifer, and work to develop educator tools and training materials to support DO programs using Aquifer to achieve better student outcomes by integrating Aquifer into their curriculum.

Helping Build the Best Possible Tools for Osteopathic Medical Educators

The Aquifer Osteopathic Physician Task Force (DO Task Force), created in January 2020, leverages osteopathic medical educators’ voices, interests, and experiences to develop tools and training materials to support DO programs using Aquifer.

With over 15 million virtual patient cases completed since our founding in 2006, Aquifer is the leader in developing clinical learning tools for medical and health professions education.
