Call for Proposals 2018

We invite you to submit a proposal to offer an educational presentation at the 2018 American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT) Annual Conference and Exposition to be held November 7-11th at the Peppermill Resort in Reno, Nevada.

AAOMPT's 2018 conference is titled: Changing the Pain Game: OMPTs Transforming the Future.

The conference committee encourages a variety of topics that reinforce the variety of roles and opportunities for the Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapist as we blend both manual physical therapy and pain science strategies together.

The proposals should be evidence supported and intended to advance foundational knowledge within OMPT. We are calling for proposals to join the 2018 AAOMPT conference.

  • One-Day Pre-conference session proposals
  • Two-Day Pre-conference session proposals
  • Breakout session presentations (45 minutes) proposals

AAOMPT invites session proposals that will address best practices in the following key OMPT areas:

  1. Advanced clinical skills and trends (hands on session)
  2. Teaching, mentoring, education trends
  3. Professional and advocacy issues
  4. Translational Knowledge strategies (using research in clinical practice)

Key Considerations for Proposal Preparation

  1. The learning objectives are clear, relevant, and useful to the AAOMPT audience.
  2. The proposed session presents high-impact clinical application techniques, and/or cutting-edge research, and/or evidence supported initiatives.
