Fundamentals of Hip and Knee Arthroplasty for Orthopaedic Residents

Important Course Update: Rosemont Location Cancelled

Updated March 24, 2020

Based on the latest CDC guidance for large events and mass gatherings, AAOS, AAHKS, The Hip Society, and The Knee Society have made the difficult decision to cancel the Rosemont location of this course, planned for May 15 – 17, 2020. The health, safety and well-being of the AAOS global community is our highest priority.

If you registered for this event, you may transfer your registration to the Long Beach location by contacting AAOS Customer Service at 1-800-626-6726 or customerservice@aaos.org. Otherwise, your cancellation will be automatically processed, and fees will be refunded on April 7, 2020.

Thank you for your commitment to the orthopaedic profession, to your patients and to your communities. We hope to see you at AAOS CME courses in the future.

  • Preoperative planning and templating
  • Practice management topics

"I absolutely loved this course. It was resident-centered throughout, focusing on education through case examples, presented in an informal and laidback setting." - 2019 Course Participant
