About American Academy Of Otolaryngic Allergy
Celebrating over 75 years of member service, the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) represents over 2,700 Board-certified otolaryngologists and health care providers. Otolaryngology, frequently referred to as Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT), uniquely combines medical and surgical expertise to care for patients with a variety of conditions affecting the ears, nose, and throat, as well as commonly related conditions. AAOA members devote part of their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease. The AAOA actively supports its membership through education, research, and advocacy in the care of allergic patients.

The mission of the AAOA, as an organization of otolaryngologists, is to enhance the knowledge and skill of physicians and others in the care of the allergic patient. AAOA members devote part of their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease, and the AAOA actively supports its members through education, research, and advocacy in the care of allergic patients.
All of the AAOA’s educational programming is based on the AAOA Scope of Knowledge. The Education Committee is responsible for developing, maintaining, and updating the scope of knowledge. It then serves as the conduit to transfer content to implement appropriate program development.
Connect with a network of over 2,700 otolaryngic allergy healthcare providers to share knowledge and experience to help advance your skills in patient care. The AAOA offers the following CME programs annually:
- Basic Course in Allergy & Immunology (Summer)
- Annual Meeting (Fall)
- Advanced Course in Allergy & Immunology (Winter)
Yearly, the AAOA expends an enormous amount of staff and volunteer-leader time and expertise promoting and defending the scope and practice of otolaryngology, recognizing allergy as a core component.
Limited to active members, the AAOA will make every effort to assist on reimbursement, scope of practice, and other payer-related issues affecting the practice of otolaryngology and patient access to care.
