Each year, the AAO offers its complimentary Osteopathic Education Service (OES) to conference-goers, guests and exhibitors at the Academy's Convocation, at the annual business meeting of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and at the AOA's annual Osteopathic Medical Conference and Exposition (OMED).
These sessions are provided for educational purposes only. During the sessions, AAO members and others provide hands-on demonstrations of osteopathic diagnostic and treatment techniques.
At the Academy’s Osteopathic Education Service (OES), volunteer physicians provide hands-on demonstrations of osteopathic diagnostic and treatment techniques in both private and group sessions.
DOs from all specialties are invited to volunteer to demonstrate their palpatory and treatment skills at the OES. Volunteers receive 0.5 credit of AOA Category 1-B CME for each demonstration. In addition, for each demonstration a physician provides during the 2019 Convocation, his or her name will be entered into a drawing for complimentary registration for the 2020 Convocation at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
After the 2019 Convocation, Andrew I. Schwartz, DO, won the raffle for complimentary registration to the 2020 Convocation. Dr. Schwartz provided 15 demonstrations at the 2019 Convocation.
Contact Bev Searcy, the AAO’s finance and membership liaison, at (317) 879-1881, ext. 212, or at BSearcy@academyofosteopathy.org for more information or to volunteer in advance for the OES at the 2020 Convocation.
This is a great opportunity for DOs to share valuable skills and experiences with their peers in a relaxed setting.
Volunteers must have their own professional liability coverage. Demonstrations are for educational purposes only.
