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.
In light of circumstances around the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19), AAOS 2020 in Orlando, Florida, has been canceled. As a result, we are not hosting our AAOS 2020 Alumni Reunion. We look forward to seeing our alumni at AAOS 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Ana De Jesus at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about the AAOS 2020 cancellation.
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.
Our 2020 Sir Robert Jones Alumni Scientific Program will be held during November 12–13, 2020.
