Research Symposia

AAOS Research Symposia and Scientific Meetings

The AAOS has been involved with many outstanding researchers in the development and presentation of information on the cutting edge of orthopaedics. The AAOS Research Symposia (formerly the AAOS/NIH workshops) represent a long history of collaboration between the Academy, governmental agencies, industry, specialty societies, the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF), the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), leading researchers, and clinicians. The symposia are designed to define the knowledge base in a chosen topic area based on scientific evidence, identify gaps, and outline future research opportunities. The symposia provide an opportunity for experts and new investigators to exchange information and develop collaborative endeavors through scientific presentations and active discussions.
