The Research Poster Presentation, sponsored by the Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee and the National Undergraduate Fellows Association, is open to osteopathic medical students, interns and residents. The primary author of each poster must be a member of the AAO or the Student American Academy of Osteopathy. The LBORC has established three categories for posters: clinical research, single case study, and education and public health.
Posters are presented at the AAO's annual Convocation, and presenters are required to register for the event.
This poster presentation motivates presenters to refine analytical thinking and presentation skills that will benefit them as they continue to pursue research. In addition, they will receive constructive feedback on their posters and presentations from the judges, and they can network with active researchers.
On Saturday, July 21, the AAO was one of four recipients of the American Osteopathic Association’s 2019 STARs (Strategic Team Award and Recognition) for its dedication to advancing osteopathic medicine. The STARs recognize contributions made by state, specialty and regional affiliates, colleges of osteopathic medicine, osteopathic postdoctoral training institutions (OPTIs), and nonpractice affiliates that have advanced the osteopathic profession. The award honors programs and activities that align with the initiatives in the AOA’s strategic plan.
Jacob J. Cukierski, DO, of Erie, Pennsylvania, was named the 2018 Resident of the Year by the American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO) on March 22 during the AAO’s annual meeting during its Convocation in Dallas.
