2019 AAOA Interactive Allergy & Rhinology Course
The Interactive Allergy & Rhinology Course (IAR) has amazing opportunities for residency training programs and residents to expand their allergy and immunology training.
Residents can attend the course three different ways:
Every year, the AAOA sponsors residents from ACGME-accredited otolaryngology training programs to help support their residency training in allergy and immunology. The sponsorship for residents included:
- Registration for the Core Basic Allergy Module on Friday and Saturday
- Round-trip to Dallas, TX
- Paid hotel accommodations for the night of February 8, 2019.
Residents need to be nominated by their training program chair or training program director and must be an AAOA resident member/resident member candidate to qualify. Sponsorship opportunities are limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. To nominate a resident for consideration, please download and complete the AAOA Nomination Form along with a letter of recommendation from the resident’s Training Program Chair or Director. Nominations may be e-mailed to email@example.com or faxed to (202) 955-5016.
AAOA-sponsored residents are funded for the Allergy component of the meeting, which is Friday to Saturday. Residents also have the option to attend a rhinology module on Sunday at an additional cost, which includes registration and hotel accommodations for Saturday evening.
Note: If the resident you would like to nominate is not an AAOA member, learn more about membership benefits on the membership application page.
