This May, the Bi-Annual All Members Meeting took place in the picturesque town of Saronno, Italy. This gathering served as a nexus for collaboration, and networking, as attendees from various member schools came together to share knowledge, foster connections, and drive excellence in the field of osteopathy.
The first day started with the president sharing news about OsEAN which included the topic "Osteopathic Models: between tradition and evidence-based practice" and dates: 24th & 25th October 2024 of the 9th Open Forum for Osteopathic Education which will take place in Saronno, Italy. The day continued with the news from the members followed by the main topic of the meeting which was learning outcomes. While some of the 27 attendees participated in a workshop “Competence based Medical Education” lead by Giacomo Consorti which had the aim to present “An outcome-based approach to the design, implementation, assessment, and evaluation of a medical education program using competencies as the organizing framework”, the others discussed existing documents on learning outcomes within osteopathy.
The first day finished with a guided visit and a delicious Italian dinner in the wonderful small-town Como. The second day continued with the topic of the first one.
We want to say thank you to our great host Accademia Italiana di Medicina Osteopatica – AIMO and its staff who did everything possible for us to feel welcome.
