Empowering physicians, empowering healthcare

What is AOP?

Since 1994, AOP has been dedicated to achieving the highest quality of teaching through the interface of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology. Achieving this vision requires a dynamic organization whose mission embodies the following standards:

  • Unification and fair representation of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology
  • Excellence in teaching all leading subjects on Aging Skin Treatments
  • Constant adherence to ethical conduct

What is an educational grant?

An educational grant is a form of unconditioned financial support, as a donation, with no exchange partnership at stake.

Unlike sponsorship, which is characterized by a bilateral exchange implying that the receiver promotes the industry party, the grant is a unilateral gesture, not conditioned to any advertisement or participation in the content of the activity. Indeed, the scientific content is entirely developed and chosen by the Scientific Committee and is therefore eligible for CME Accreditation.

The funds are allocated to cover specific costs of the activity that are related to the provision of a balanced, accurate and scientifically independent activity, project, or program.

Why support AOP?

For over 20 years, AOP has been committed to providing the highest quality of educational content for physicians in the medical aesthetic field. With five worldwide meetings and over 550 hours of learning per year, AOP has established itself as one of the most prestigious meetings in this specialty.

In a field that constantly evolves, physicians need to keep their knowledge up to date aided by the latest developments and techniques. With hundreds of CME accredited hours of learning over the course of five worldwide congresses, we ensure to fill the educational needs of over 10,000 participants from more than 170 countries globally, and subsequently provide safe, high quality and effective health outcomes for patients.

Where do the funds go?

The funds received through an educational grant are used to fund the supplies of the activity that are directly related to the delivery of educational content. Gathering these tangible efforts, we are able to bring an intangible asset, which is the provision high quality medical education.

Additionally, grantors can fund specific topics or sessions within our meeting (for example anatomy or clinical dermatology sessions) or specific supplies or items within the meeting (for example funding registration fee waivers for young physicians/residents).

How it works?

You can provide a Grant by expressing your interest in one or several of our online products on http://www.aopcongress.com. Then, here is how it works:

  1. We will then send you an official Grant application;
  2. You will review the application and give us a response;
  3. If your answer is positive, we will draw a contract to settle the agreement;
  4. Once the funds are received, they are directly allocated to the appropriate supply.

N.B.: In gratitude of our grantors’ generosity, AOP provides an acknowledgment that can be featured in the meeting program or signage, among others.
