Dr. William S. Mayo, DO, assumed the presidency at the American Osteopathic Association’s annual business meeting in Chicago this past weekend. The organization represents the professional interests of the nation’s more than 137,000 DOs and osteopathic medical students.
“Single accreditation brings tremendous promise for the expansion of osteopathic medicine,” said Dr. Mayo. “In order to realize that potential, we’ll need to ensure our continuing education and board certification offerings are cost and time efficient, and designed to leverage the best advanced technology.”
Dr. Mayo is a board-certified ophthalmologist and also a clinical instructor at the William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Hattiesburg, where he served as chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology.
A graduate of the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, Dr. Mayo completed a residency in ophthalmology at University of Mississippi Medical Center. Additionally, Dr. Mayo is a past president of the Mississippi Osteopathic Medical Association and served on the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure since 2006-2018, where he was president from 2010-2012.
