UMA Policy on Osteopathic and Allopathic Physician Non-Discrimination

The Utah Medical Association (UMA) believes that osteopathic and allopathic physicians are equivalently trained and should be treated equally.  No physician or student should be discriminated against in any way simply based on being an osteopathic or allopathic physician or student.  This includes discrimination by health or education systems, physician practices, clinics, or any other employer.
