During the competition, students chosen from each SAAO chapter will have five minutes to present their cases. Students will demonstrate their understanding and application of osteopathic principles and treatment, their knowledge of pathophysiology and clinical aspects of their cases, and the impact of osteopathic care. Presenters will be judged on their presentation style, skill and slide design in addition to the students’ involvement in decision-making and delivering treatment.
The SAAO needs physicians to volunteer to judge the competition. Judges earn Category 1-A CME for participating. Indicate your willingness to volunteer when you register for Convocation online or using the form on Page 11. If selected, you will be contacted by the SAAO Executive Council to confirm your appointment to the judging panel.
Judges’ comments, but not scores, will be shared with presenters.
