Our second annual All Members Meeting for 2019, was held in Catania this October. Saying that the weather was nice, the food delicious and the time we spent exchanging good, would be a big understatement. The meeting was hosted by our member CSdOI (Centro Studi di Osteopatia Italiano) and joined by 31 participants from 21 member schools and 3 candidates for membership schools.
The topic of the meeting was Partnership. The partnership with different organisations such as Osteopathic International Alliance (OIA), Societa' Italiana Di Pedagogia Medica (SIPeM) & An International Association for Medical Education (AMEE). Raimund Engel (External Affairs Committee), who represented OsEAN during the annual OIA meeting, gave a short report on the meeting and the news from OIA. Carmine Castagna (Board Member & External Affairs Committee) and Giacomo Consorti (Core Competencies Committee) made an AMEE experience report – overview and Inspiration from the most important MedED association existing. A suggestion for a collaboration with AMEE SIPeM, AACOM (Proposal for joint venture, agreement or partnership) was made.
