Our Goals

Allergy and inflammatory disease are an integral part of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. We enable comprehensive management of allergic and inflammatory disease by advancing the science and knowledge of Otolaryngology practitioners as we strive to:

  1. Train Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgeons and practices in the diagnosis, testing, and treatment of allergy and inflammatory disease.
  2. Lead professional societies in the innovative delivery of educational content
  3. Advocate for the business and practice of managing allergy and inflammatory disease in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery

Advocacy

Yearly, the AAOA expends an enormous amount of staff and volunteer-leader time and expertise promoting and defending the scope and practice of otolaryngology, recognizing allergy as a core component.
Limited to active members, the AAOA will make every effort to assist on reimbursement, scope of practice, and other payer-related issues affecting the practice of otolaryngology and patient access to care.
