2020 AOM Conference – Schedule for 'live' PDWs

  • 1.  2020 AOM Conference – Schedule for 'live' PDWs

    Dear ENT Division Members,

    I hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe. 

    Together with my colleagues from the Division's leadership, it is my great pleasure to invite you to take part in the many exciting Professional Development Workshops (PDW) that are set to take place online as part of the 2020 AOM Conference's synchronous program (that is, these events will take place 'live' at specific times).  I wish that all the great PDW that were accepted as part of the program could be part of the synchronous program, but the number that could be included was significantly limited.  Please note that several of the live PDW have online resources to help us to use the live time efficiently. 

    To make your planning easier, the following table lists the date and time of these events: please note that all times are for North America's East-Coast Daylight Saving Time (EDT): this corresponds to UTC minus 4.
