As a participant in a Pennsylvania orthopaedic surgery residency training program you are an automatic member of the Pennsylvania Orthopaedic Society (POS). The POS is the voice of orthopaedic surgeons in the Commonwealth. As members, you are entitled to a variety of benefits and opportunities to enhance your training now and prepare for your career in the future. By way of the Resident page on POS’ website I will strive to keep you up to date on information, events and opportunities available to you as a resident in Pennsylvania. I encourage you to take advantage of what POS has to offer and to let me know if there is more this organization can do to serve you.
Scientific Paper Submission - Every year all practicing orthopaedic surgeons, residents, and fellows are invited to submit a research paper for presentation at our spring and fall scientific meetings. The top three papers win an award!
