Annual AACA Meetings
Other Anatomical Meetings
As most of you know, the AACA's annual Scientific Session is supported in great part by our contributing vendors. The list below contains the majority of our new and/or sustaining vendor companies. Why not visit the web site of those vendors to familiarize yourself with their full line of offerings and consider them first when purchasing materials as a way of showing them how we value their continued support.
International visitors must present a passport or other valid travel document when entering the United States.
Visas are required for most travelers to the U.S. Increased security measures now require visa applications to undergo greater scrutiny than in the past. Because the application and review process can take considerable time, applicants are advised to apply as early as possible (at least 2-3 months) in advance of their travel date.
If you need a visa, you must go to your closest U.S. visa-issuing post for an interview with a Department of State consular officer, which includes a review of your application and supporting documents, and collection of your biometrics (up to 10 digital fingerprints and a digital photograph). This site fully outlines these required documents/credentials. For more information on how long you will have to wait to get an interview appointment and for specific details on visa requirements and application procedures for your country of origin, please visit this site.
Canadian citizens and citizens from Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries (currently, 35 countries; see list of countries) can come to the U.S. without a visa provided they meet certain passport requirements. Travelers from all VWP countries must obtain approval through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to traveling to the U.S. Visitors may apply online for travel authorization via the ESTA web site at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov.
As part of the arrival process into the U.S., all international visitors will experience US-VISIT biometric procedures (collection of digital fingerprints and photographs) prior to their entrance.
The AACA Program Secretary (Dr. Noelle Granger) will issue letters of invitation to those registered attendees who require them. Letters of invitation MUST be requested as early as possible. Last minute letters will only be expedited by courier at the expense of the individual requesting them.
Interested in hosting an AACA annual meeting? Have you wondered what this involves? The .pdf documents linked below outline the preliminary information Executive Council of the AACA needs to have before it can accept an invitation to meet in your area. Why not think about hosting the AACA membership in your city? Our Meeting Manager (Ms. Shanan Molnar) takes on the greater part of the responsibilities for hosting a meeting, making it a much less arduous task than it was 5 years ago.
The 30th annual meeting of the AACA will be held in Denver, Colorado at the Marriott City Center Hotel - July 9th - 13th, 2013.
On July 9th, the Scientific Program will start and run through Friday, July 12th.
The post-graduate course is scheduled for Saturday, July 13th. This year the course will be held out at the new University of Coloarado Medical Center site in Aurora. We will be sectioning a structure during the meeting and the dataset will be ready for hands-on use by attendees on Saturday.
Vic Spitzer is the local host and we are looking forward to a great meeting in Denver!

The Society of Ultrasound in Medical Education (SUSME) is proud to sponsor the First Conference on Ultrasound in Anatomy and Physiology Education March 22-23, 2013.
The conference is designed to introduce educators teaching anatomy or physiology in the health sciences to the use of ultrasound in their curricula. Ultrasound has the potential to enhance the education provided for students in pre-medicine, medicine, nursing, physical therapy, physician assistants, and other health professions. Essential topics with be discussed, including tips for getting a program started at your institution. The conference will also offer introductory ultrasound workshops for the novice and those with limited ultrasound experience.
