2019 Clinical and Practice Management Applications FAQs

How do I apply?


All applications must be submitted into either the clinical or practice management application. Both are available at AAOMS.org/speakers.

Which application should I choose?


Clinical courses must be scientifically/clinically based on a number of topics such as anesthesia, medicine, or trauma. Practice Management courses must deal with practice management and/or staff development, in topics such as social media, legal, administration, OSHA and HIPAA.

Both applications offer a range of topics and are not limited to those above. 

What is the submission timeframe?


The applications are available from July 3 to Sept. 30, 2018. No late submissions will be accepted.

How long will it take to complete the application?


Allow yourself at least 1 hour to complete either of the applications. You may find it takes slightly more or less time, but this is an average.

What information will I need for the applications?


The landing page will ask for basic information – such as clinical or practice management format – to begin the application.

There are six steps in the application, with multiple questions in each step. The main steps are:

  • Submission (synopsis, topics, etc.)
  • Learning objectives (Course objectives)
  • Speakers and bios (speaker, co-speaker(s), with all contact information and bios)
  • Speaker disclosures (all speakers’ financial disclosures with commercial interests)
  • Additional details (ACCME/ADA CERP requirements, such as practice gaps, barriers to change, etc.)
  • Course outline

Please note: The application is considered incomplete and will be withdrawn unless all steps are finalized before the deadline. 

I have previously submitted an application to AAOMS. Do I need to submit a new application for the same course?


Yes, please submit a new application even if the course has been previously submitted or presented. You can select ‘Repeat’ or ‘Revised’ session on the first step of the application. 

I have additional questions. Who can I contact?


For clinical questions, please contact Shannon Murray, Continuing Education Department.

For Practice Management questions, please contact Bridget Treccia, Practice Managment & Allied Staff Department.
