The ORS is excited to celebrate its 60th Annual Meeting in New Orleans. New Orleans is a fitting location for this special anniversary. It is a city woven with rich history and traditions as well as exciting plans for the future. There is always something to celebrate in New Orleans and the ORS Annual Meeting is no exception!
The ORS 2014 Annual Meeting will overlap with the end of the AAOS Annual Meeting this year. This year, ORS registrants will be able to participate in the AAOS Annual Meeting and AAOS Specialty Day. Click on “ORS/AAOS Collaborating in the Science of Patient Care” below for more information.

The 2014 Research Interest Groups (RIGs) are a unique opportunity to engage colleagues in lively discussions in your area of musculoskeletal research. RIGs foster thoughtful exchange of ideas and forge collaborative partnerships.
Due to the success of these groups over the past three ORS Annual Meetings the ORS will be organizing RIGs for participants attending the 2014 ORS Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
ORS encourages all attendees to make the most of their time in New Orleans by taking advantage of these additional opportunities to network and socialize.
This year’s Video Outreach Competition, sponsored by the ORS Media Relations and Communications Committee, challenged researchers to make a video highlighting how the collaborations of scientists, engineers and clinicians are vital to improving orthopaedic healthcare.
The winning videos will be recognized at the ORS 2014 Annual Meeting in New Orleans. Get a sneak peak at the winning entries!
