The ESO encourages graduates who have produced high-quality research dissertations to submit to a range of national and international conferences. In 2016, Graduate Jane Beazley (pictured) had the fantastic opportunity of presenting her work at the Osteopathic European Academic Network (OsEAN) Conference in Vienna, where she was awarded first prize for best poster presentation. More recently, new graduates Damien Laruelle and Annmarie O’Sullivan presented their research at the 49th Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Medical Ultrasound (Ultrasound 2017) and the UCO International Education Conference 2017 respectively.
