Open July 23, 2020 - July 22, 2021
Accredited for 17.5 AMA PRA Category I Credits(TM) 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel the safest way to conduct this year's 37th Annual Meeting is through a virtual presentation format. The virtual seminar is available at no cost to SOA members, residents, fellows and medical students and is $25 for non-members.

The virtual seminar program features the latest research presented through abstract presentations on a variety of orthopaedic topics. The program will remain open for one full year, so that attendees may access the various presentations at their leisure.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you at our 38th Annual Meeting being held at Wild Dunes in Charleston, South Carolina!
