Every year, we come together as a as a global community of osteopathic physicians and osteopaths to connect not only with each other, but also with a diverse group of speakers and resources in order to learn more about the state of osteopathic medicine and osteopathy around the world. The past three years we’ve met in the UK, Canada, and the US, and next year we shall meet in the New Zealand.
We are currently seeking a venue for our 2018 annual general meeting and conference, and we invite your organization to apply.
Hosting an OIA conference is hard work, but it brings with it many benefits. It highlights your organization, gives you access to dynamic speakers and resources, and allows you to showcase your country.
What does hosting an OIA conference entail? Generally speaking, the conferences are normally held between September and November. They are usually organised in partnership with a member organization’s annual conference (although this is not required). Host organizations commit time and resources to preparing the conference, and the Conference Organizing Committee of the OIA assists in developing the conference program. Our annual conference theme is “Osteopathy: A Global Presence,” which can be expanded upon for specific year’s meetings.
