The MRO Controversies session at AOHC has become a clearinghouse where medical review officers (MROs) come to learn about late-breaking issues in the arena of drug testing from a unique expert faculty who addresses current controversies in the performance of MRO work. In
the past, this has included such topics as medical and legal marijuana use, fitness for duty, preparation for DOT audits, foreign and spousal medication use, international drug testing issues and alternative testing methodologies. The session culminates with the “MRO Jeopardy” game that incorporates current events as well as a mix of important concepts for all practicing MROs. This session is sponsored by the Medical Review Officers Special Interest Section. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
