Who May Attend Convocation?

The AAO’s primary educational objective is to provide programs that enhance the philosophical foundation, palpatory diagnostic skills and manipulative techniques of AAO members, nonmember DOs, other individuals who are licensed for the unlimited scope of practice of medicine, and those in programs leading to such licensure.

Although other health care professionals are welcome to learn about osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) at AAO programs, attending the AAO’s Convocation or its Pre-Convocation courses is not a substitute for graduating from osteopathic medical school and completing graduate medical education. Simply participating in continuing medical education programs in manual techniques does not provide the necessary training and skills to practice OMM.
