    New & Redesigned

    Friday, February 23 – Sunday, February 25, 2018

    The Interactive Allergy & Rhinology Course presents basic concepts and techniques applicable to the clinical care of allergic patients, as well as clinical fundamentals and review materials for the MOC in Allergy and Rhinology. Additionally, the AAOA sponsors residents from ACGME-accredited otolaryngology training programs to help augment their residency training in allergy and immunology.

    Content Area

    The AAOA CME program centers around clinical issues related to the care of allergy/immunology and inflammatory diseases of the airways and systems related to the head and neck.

    The Interactive Allergy & Rhinology Course focuses on:

    • Allergy in the otolaryngology practice
    • Allergy testing (Prick, IT, IDT, In Vitro)
    • Treatment of allergy (SCIT, SLIT, dose calculations, vial prep)
    • Introduction to advanced topics (unified airway, asthma, food allergies, SLIT)
    • Integration of SLIT into treatment discussions
    • Diagnosis and medical and surgical management of sinus disease
    • Pediatric sinusitis
    • Immunodeficiencies, cystic fibrosis

    Target Audience

    The Interactive Allergy & Rhinology Course is structured for otolaryngologists preparing to sit for the ABOto MOC Exam and AAOA Associate members preparing for the Fellow Exam. The course is also valuable for otolaryngologists integrating more allergy assessment and management into their practice, AAOA members providing specialized allergy care who need to remain current with literature-based evidence and practice trends, residents, and NP/PAs who work in otolaryngology. The Interactive Allergy & Rhinology Course offers face-to-face opportunities with the faculty to discuss nuances and answer questions.
