Education and Training

AAOM offers resources and community for students and practitioners in all phases of their career. Many of our members are top researchers in the field of Oral Medicine, with an interest in expanding the field and its work. For this reason, education is a core focus of the Academy.

Some of the issues our members are interested in include:

  • Oral mucosal diseases
  • Salivary gland disorders
  • Oral chemosensory disorders
  • General medicine pertinent to oral diseases
  • Oral lesions
  • Salivary dysfunction
  • Orofacial pain disorders
  • Oral manifestations of systemic diseases

We publish a series of Clinician's Guides covering many of these topics, and we also sponsor OOOO, the Academy's official journal.

We offer Student memberships and serve as a clearinghouse for those wanting to know more about opportunities in Oral Medicine.

For more information about formal education in Oral Medicine, please see our summary of dental education with specialization in Oral Medicine.
