In an effort to strengthen resident involvement in Society activities and to increase awareness of the political process, POS maintains a position on its Board of Directors for a resident representative from each program in Pennsylvania. Our goal is to educate and familiarize residents on how legislation effects the practice of orthopedics and to define issues facing young orthopaedists today. This position offers unique leadership training for chosen candidates.
The POS Program Committee invites all practicing orthopaedic surgeons, residents, and fellows to submit a paper for presentation at our scientific meetings. Residents should note that there is a competition for the top paper at each meeting.
Pennsylvania is known across the country for its strong orthopaedic programs. Below are links to some of these institutions.
