AOA OMED 2017 (Osteopathic Medical Conference & Exposition) - American Osteopathic Association

5,000

Overview

Event Overview:

Hosted by the American Osteopathic Association, OMED is an annual medical conference bringing together thousands of osteopathic physicians, medical students and other health professionals from across the country.

The Annual AOA Research Conference is held each year in conjunction with the AOA Annual Osteopathic Medical Conference & Exposition (OMED). DOs, professors and osteopathic medical students present their research findings and network with other researchers who share mutual interests during didactic sessions, a full poster exhibition, and a student poster competition.

Exhibitor Information:

OMED is more than a conference. It is the largest gathering of osteopathic physicians in the world!

OMED 2017 is THE place to meet face-to-face with more than 5,000 osteopathic physicians, students and health professionals seeking the latest and most relevant products, technologies, therapeutics and services to benefit their patients. Register as an exhibitor today!

Why OMED?

You can’t reach this audience anyplace else!
Saturday General session will break directly into the Exhibit Hall.
Receptions, coffee breaks, Ted-sytle talks, and OMED Central to pull attendees into the hall.
Practical education focused on issues DOs and their patients care about.

WHY EXHIBIT AT OMED?
OMED brings together 6,000 DOs at ONE MEETING and is the largest gathering of DOs in the country!
295% increase in the number of graduates since 1986
DOs are the fastest growing medical profession and at the growth rate we have over 100,000+ DOs now.
DOs are gaining in numbers and medical importance. By the year 2020 it is predicted that there will be a shortage of more than 45,000 PCPs and FPs of which DOs will fill the gap.
Approximately 2,000 of OMED DOs practice in rural communities and are very difficult to reach - this is your chance to get in front of this unique audience.
