The OSAP Symposium provides a unique opportunity to mingle with and learn from the leading authorities in the critical and rapidly changing field of infection prevention and safety in oral health care. Attendees have their choice of in-depth lectures, interactive learning sessions, and tightly focused programs designed for specific specialists such as educators and consultants. The top companies in infection prevention and safety exhibit both time-tested and new products, and attendees have the opportunity to learn about important aspects of the products and take home valuable information on how the products can help them maintain a safe environment for dental staff and patients.
The OSAP Symposium is targeted to educators, infection control coordinators, consultants, compliance officers, risk managers, researchers, policy makers, sterilization technicians, and others in dental clinics, private practices, large group practices, hospitals, universities, government facilities, and companies that manufacture or sell infection control products and services. The breadth and depth of the educational programs offered assures that attendees at every level, from student to expert, will expand their knowledge base and make important contacts.
Symposium attendees can also choose from a number of optional leisure activities during the three-day event. These include dining options, tours, and the popular OSAP auction. The Baltimore location offers a wealth of historical, cultural, and culinary delights, and provides many choices for family members accompanying attendees.
Registration for the Symposium can be completed online at www.osap.org. Program details will be available in mid-February. There are discounts for early registration, OSAP membership, additional attendees from the same facility, and students. Early-bird registration ends March 31.
