About NextGen

Because the IAOMS helps members build their practice and the OMF profession, in 2017 the association created a NextGen Council, geared to developing young surgeons. Two representatives from each major region sit on the Council, which is chaired by Dr. Alfred Lau (Hong Kong). The NextGen liaison to the IAOMS Board and Executive Committee is IAOMS VP Dr. Gabrielle Milesi (Austria).
