Resident Membership Benefits
ROAAOMS Program Liaisons
ROAAOMS has developed a network of residents, “ROAAOMS Program Liaisons,” (with one resident per residency training program) to assist the Executive Committee in communicating important information – including highlights of upcoming events – to all residents. In addition, ROAAOMS continues its efforts in increasing resident awareness and encouraging residents to take ownership of and become involved in their specialty.
If you are interested in serving as your program liaison, please contact Laurie Oddo at 800-822-6637, ext. 4330.
Admission fees for the AAOMS Annual Meeting were waived through July 31, for oral and maxillofacial surgery residents enrolled in an ADA-accredited training program in the United States, its territories or Canada. After July 31, residents have been able to purchase a ticket at a discounted rate of $50. Residents have exclusive opportunities at Annual Meeting, including:
Resident Organization Educational Program
Residents are encouraged to attend and participate in this interactive program filled with leading surgeons who present on surgical complications in a variety of clinical areas. Residents can become involved in the organization that works for them and learn about how they can play an important role.
Residents are welcome to join their fellow residents, AAOMS members and corporate sponsors for an evening of camaraderie and entertainment FREE of charge.
This program provides residents the opportunity to learn about the mission, objectives and the board certification process. Residents will gain an understanding about qualifying and oral certification examinations and what to expect during the examination process.
Dental Implant Conference
The AAOMS Dental Implant Conference focuses on building communication and cooperation among patients, oral and maxillofacial surgeons and general dentists and on practical methods for delivering sophisticated implant care in the private practice setting. This unique continuing education experience is designed for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, other dental specialties and general dentists with a strong interest in the field of dental implants. Residents receive a reduced registration fee.
Resident Transitions into Practice Conference
The ROAAOMS Executive Committee plans the Resident Transitions into Practice Conference: Preparing for Post-residency Life. The conference provides residents with essential non-clinical information to help with the transition from residency to practice. Residents can attend the conference for free.
Clinical Trials Methods Course
The AAOMS Clinical Trials Methods Course provides oral and maxillofacial surgeons – including faculty, residents, fellows and private practitioners – a broad overview of research methodology and clinical trial design. Ideally, a resident and a faculty mentor pair will attend the course. Residents also will have the opportunity to interact with course faculty and faculty from other programs. The course is complimentary to all attendees.
Clinical and Scientific Innovations for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (CSIOMS) conference
The CSIOMS conference is a complimentary educational conference that brings together world-class researchers from a variety of disciplines to showcase the latest technologies and research affecting the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Publications and references
A key benefit the Association offers to its fellows and members is the ability to gather and share knowledge about the specialty.
One of the main purposes of ROAAOMS is to improve and enhance communication among its members and educate residents about OMS and issues facing the specialty. In order to increase communication at a decreased cost, ROAAOMS replaced the printed quarterly newsletter, Resident Reach, with a quarterly email, Resident E-News. The e-newsletter is disseminated quarterly and serves as the main communication tool among residents.
