The goals of the SOARS conference connect with the mission of ORS: Accelerate musculoskeletal discovery to improve health and ORS Ambassadors purpose in creating regional/local opportunities to share knowledge, collaborate, connect, and  strengthen the ORS community, orthopaedic research, musculoskeletal science and associated fields globally.

The poster session and networking opportunities will foster collaboration, networking, and diverse connections from attendees at all career stages. Authors selected to participate in the poster session will have the opportunity to share their work and participate in interactive activities to exchange knowledge.

We hope this connection with an established, primarily clinician conference will allow us to introduce the ORS to more local clinicians as well as researchers in the western area of the United States.

There is no cost to attend the conference, but registration is required. Registration will be overseen by the SOARS conference organizers.

  • Clinical research and case presentation
  • Spine

  • Tendon and Ligament
