Convocation Information:

For the first time, the Student American Academy of Osteopathy (SAAO), and the Student American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine (SAOASM) are teaming up to explore these relationships, particularly in the athletic population. The philosophy and principles of osteopathic medicine are applicable to all clinical settings and patient encounters, including those of a traumatic nature. Physical and emotional trauma causes somatic dysfunctions in all patients whether acute or chronic. Learning how to recognize and address these traumas is essential to treating the whole person. The Student Program at Convocation encourages students to be comfortable applying OMM and OMT in these challenging scenarios. We will guide OMT adaptability and creativity for various levels of mobility, comorbidities, and somatic and visceral dysfunctions. Students will collaboratively discuss OMT applications in difficult clinical settings. Hands-on workshops, lectures, and discussions will provide strategies to actively advocate for the osteopathic philosophy within the larger field of medicine.

If your new AAO or AOASM membership application has not been approved, you will be charged the nonmember rate for Convocation. It may take 24 hours for applications to be approved.

About the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort
On 255 acres along Shingle Creek, the headwaters of the Everglades, rises Rosen Shingle Creek. The luxury hotel breaks above the horizon and fills the sights of anyone traveling the southern end of Universal Boulevard, off which it is located. As you approach the property, you realize how close it is to the Orange County Convention Center North/South expansion and the Orlando International Airport. All of Orlando’s best attractions, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues are within a short distance of this ideal location.

The hotel’s 1,501 guestrooms offer luxurious first-class settings wrapped in Spanish revival architecture. Capitalizing on Rosen Shingle Creek’s elevation, every single room offers a stunning view of the area’s incomparable setting. The perfectly manicured fairways and greens of Shingle Creek Golf Course, the picturesque creek lined by magnificent cypress trees, and lush natural vegetation seem to enter the room through oversized windows. This immersive experience is what guests love the most about staying at Rosen Shingle Creek.

Yet the beauty of it all is receiving the lavish experience without paying resort prices, and you never pay a resort fee. Rosen Shingle Creek’s profound dedication to outstanding service is what makes us unique in the tourist capital of the world. In addition, hotel guests receive complimentary self-parking.
