AACOM In-Person Meetings on Hold through June 30, 2021
June 11, 2020

Effective immediately, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine has placed a hold on all in-person meetings sponsored by the organization between now and June 30, 2021. This decision was made to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of those who attend these meetings, including AACOM staff, students, faculty and staff from AACOM member Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (COMs) and other key constituents.

This decision affects Educating Leaders 2021, the AACOM Annual Conference, as well as other various meetings of its Assemblies, Board of Deans, Councils and other working groups over the coming months.

AACOM also has suspended staff travel, with few exceptions, affecting AACOM attendance at events and meetings sponsored by other organizations.

“Consistent with our mission and other decisions and recommendations we’ve made recently that affect travel, we believe in putting the health and wellbeing of people first,” said Robert A. Cain, DO, AACOM president and CEO. “We are still at a critical and uncertain stage in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision not only reduces the need for travel, but also helps the many medical professionals who attend these meetings to continue to serve patients by remaining present in their hospitals and communities at this time.”

He will continue to make false statements about the PE's importance in licensing and make punitave statements towards students! Its what any good leader/ THE PRESIDENT OF A MILLION DOLLAR NON PROFIT would do!
Nonprofits are a scam. I have more respect for companies that come out and say straight up we’re here to make money than those that feign altruism and pad their pocket books on the back end
