As reported in my Daily Reports of 9/27-28/11, AOA Immediate Past President Karen J. Nichols, DO, Trustee Boyd R. Buser, DO, Past President Peter B. Ajluni, DO, and I are in Potsdam, Germany, this week to represent the U.S. osteopathic medical profession at the Osteopathic International Alliance’s (OIA) 2011 Annual Educational Forum. AOA Past President Eugene A. Oliveri, DO, is also here on behalf of Michigan State University – College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSU-COM), as are other leaders from the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME), and the American Osteopathic Information Association (AOIA). The OIA is partnering with the Osteopathic European Alliance (OsEAN) to present “Teaching Palpation,” a 2-day forum on palpation through discussion and hands-on work. Seminars focusing on the practice and teaching of palpation fundamentals, technology and virtual patients, and the regulation of osteopathic medicine around the world were presented. The combined events mark the largest meeting of the osteopathic professions in German history.
