We are currently accepting proposals for the 2019 Annual Meeting in Boston!

NEW for 2019 – 
In addition to a traditional course, AOSSM is seeking submissions for Round Table ICs. The goal of a Round Table IC format is to foster small group interaction. The moderator presents a case from the front of the room while one faculty member joins participants at each round table (faculty to participation ratio of about 1:10). During each session, three-to-five cases will be presented. Patient history, physical examination findings, imaging, and laboratory results (as needed) will be covered. Then, the moderator will ‘turn the case over’ to the individual tables for discussion. Tables will be able to report on how they decided to manage the condition, and the moderator will share his or her own solution, along with references to provide evidence-based support for the chosen course of action.
