Welcome from the President

James Slough - MD New Hi-Res.Welcome to the Clinical Orthopaedic Society website. Our society has a long history of education, networking, camaraderie, and leadership development with great small to medium-sized annual meetings allowing for an intimate learning experience. Presentations are appropriate for the general orthopaedic surgeon and run the gamut of surgical subspecialties and the 2.5 day format allows for more diverse educational experiences than specialty society meetings. The COS is a national society although sometimes considered one of the regional orthopaedic societies.


Resident Happy Hour

Resident Happy Hour Photo

The Clinical Orthopaedic Society in conjunction with Stryker Orthopaedics sponsored a Resident Happy Hour at the American Tap Room in Bethesda last April.  Residents from four DC and Maryland orthopaedic residencies were invited.  There was an excellent turn out from the residents and a chalk talk was given by Dr. Peroutka on the benefits of joining and being involved in professional societies.  Given the excellent response by residents we hope to sponsor more events to engage residents.  If you have a group of residencies in your area and are interested in arranging a resident happy hour please contact the COS at cos@societyhq.com.
