Welcome from the President


I am honored to serve as the 104th President of the Clinical Orthopaedic Society. We are the second oldest orthopaedic association with a long and storied tradition of education and fellowship. Our recent meeting in New York was fantastic, and I hope you had the opportunity to attend. The COS provides attendees such an opportunity to interact with speakers and members not provided in other settings. I congratulate Dr. James Slough for a wonderful year as President of the COS. His leadership over the past several years has been immeasurable and we should all be grateful for this. The board and I look forward to his continued support in his new role as immediate Past President. I would also like to thank Drs. Joseph Bosco and Daniel Green for an excellent educational program at the 103rd Annual Meeting.

Next year the COS will return to New Orleans September 29 – October 1, 2016 for what we expect to be another incredible educational opportunity. The Roosevelt Hotel, a Waldorf Astoria Hilton, having recently undergone a complete renovation, will serve as the host venue.


Resident Happy Hour

The Clinical Orthopaedic Society in conjunction with Stryker Orthopaedics sponsored a Resident Happy Hour at the American Tap Room in Bethesda last April.  Residents from four DC and Maryland orthopaedic residencies were invited.  There was an excellent turn out from the residents and a chalk talk was given by Dr. Peroutka on the benefits of joining and being involved in professional societies.  Given the excellent response by residents we hope to sponsor more events to engage residents.  If you have a group of residencies in your area and are interested in arranging a resident happy hour please contact the COS at cos@societyhq.com.
