Annual Meeting

Media registration is open! We invite members of the press to join us in San Diego, August 31 - September 3 as the musculoskeletal community safely reunites in person for the first time in nearly two years for four powerful days of education, innovation and collaboration.

AAOS remains committed to protecting your health, safety and peace of mind as we cautiously return to live events. 

Statement About the Venue - Indoor California Gatherings

(April 7, 2021)

The AAOS is encouraged by recent news from California health officials which allows the resumption of indoor activities this month. We continue to plan for and look forward to hosting an in-person event at the San Diego Conference Center and will release more information about our attendance policies once the convention center and the State of California provide us with more guidance. In the meantime, additional details about our physical distancing plans and mask requirements can be found on the AAOS Annual Meeting Health and Safety Resources page.
