Orthopedic Surgery Alumni Events

Our alumni events offer educational and networking opportunities, as well as the chance for you to catch up with former classmates. We hope you will join us.

Alumni Reception at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), founded at Northwestern University in 1933, has grown from a small organization serving fewer than 500 members to the world’s largest medical association of musculoskeletal specialists. The academy now serves more than 39,000 members worldwide.

At the AAOS Annual Meeting orthopedists from around the world take part in a weeklong academic program that includes conferences, symposia, multimedia exhibits, and a wide range of policy and social events related to the field of orthopedic surgery. Members of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery actively present and participate in the AAOS Annual Meeting.

The Annual Scientific Program and Sir Robert Jones Lecture

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery’s annual Sir Robert Jones Lecture, first delivered at the Hospital for Joint Diseases (now NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital) in 1930, continues the tradition of excellence in orthopedics by highlighting the work of distinguished contemporary scholars while also honoring the achievements of Sir Robert Jones (1857–1933). Sir Jones made a profound and lasting impression on British and American orthopedic surgery, from his organization of the first comprehensive accident service treating injured workers during the construction of the Manchester Ship Canal to his work as inspector of military orthopedics in Great Britain during World War I. Attendees present papers on clinical experiences and results, as well as basic anatomical, biomechanical, and animal science research.

The two-day academic program is offered through NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s continuing medical education program for credit. A renowned orthopedic surgeon presents two lectures during the event, including the Sir Robert Jones keynote lecture. In a new tradition, returning alumni attend a dinner and reception honoring specific graduating resident classes.

The 2022 Annual Meeting of the Alumni Association and Sir Robert Jones Lecture took place on November 11 at NYU Langone. The Sir Robert Jones lecturer was Thomas Errico, MD, associate director of pediatric orthopedic and neurosurgical spine at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Center for Spinal Disorders. Dr. Errico is also a distinguished alumnus and former chief of our Division of Spine Surgery.
