Call for Presentations 

Presentations should reflect needs:

Our needs assessment process is very important to (1) maintain the utmost quality of our educational programs, (2) fulfill requirements as an AOA Accredited CME sponsor, and (3) ensure that our topics meet knowledge gaps and are relevant to physicians practicing in the areas of aerospace medicine (including hyperbaric medicine), preventive medicine and  public health (including correctional medicine), occupational and environmental medicine (including disability and impairment evaluation medicine).

Topic proposals are most needed in these areas:

  • Epidemiology and Statistics, biostatistics
  • Substance Abuse
  • Environmental and Biological Hazards/Radiation Exposure/Reproductive Hazards.
  • Rules and Regulations, Legal and Regulatory, Public Health Law, Legal aspects of medicine.
  • Chronic disease prevention
  • Public Health Administration

  • Aerospace Medicine History (current vs. archives)
  • Injury prevention
  • Clinical aerospace
  • Biomechanics/barometric physiology
  • Fundamentals and clinical applications of Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine
  • Correctional Medicine
  • Disability Impairment Evaluation

NOTE: Some proposals may be selected as commemorative or memorial lectures at AOCOPM's Midyear Educational Conference.

Please see the Needs Assessment Guide Online or PDF version for further aide in evaluating/defending the appropriateness of a given topic.  Also useful are the guidelines for Writing Quality Behavioral Learning Objectives.
