2021 ACOS-MSS Fall Convention


2021 ACOS-MSS Fall Conference
After careful consideration of the health and safety conditions for holding a large-scale event in Orlando, Florida, the ACOS Board of Governors made the difficult, but responsible, decision to cancel the in-person 2021 Annual Clinical Assembly of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACA) and convert it to a virtual format, to be launched in early November. As the medical student section of the ACOS, we will follow the lead of the ACOS and will also transition our annual conference to a virtual conference format.

The ACOS medical student section will automatically refund registrations purchased for the 2021 ACOS-MSS annual meeting. You will then be able to electively register for the virtual conference, at a discounted rate of $60. To encourage attendance, we will also offer scholarships for two members from each official ACOS-MSS chapter on a first come, first served basis.
