The Guest Society Program
AAHKS is committed to increasing the presence of international societies, their scientific research, and their members at our Annual Meeting to ensure we bring international perspectives and expertise to our members. At our 2015 Annual Meeting, we started the 1st Annual Guest Society Program, where we invited arthroplasty societies from across the globe to partner with AAHKS and attend our Annual Meeting.
We look forward to future Guest Societies joining our program each year to expand the reach of arthroplasty research and exchanges internationally to the mutual benefit of all organizations involved.
2017 Guest Societies:
Colombian Orthopaedic and Traumatology Society (SCCOT)
European Hip Society (EHS)
2016 Guest Societies:
The Indian Society for Hip & Knee Surgeons (ISHKS) | Guest Society Flyer
The European Knee Society (EKS)
AAHKS as a Guest Society
AAHKS successfully served as the first official Guest Society of the British Hip Society at its Annual Meeting, March 1-3, 2017 in London, UK.
AAHKS believes that a greater interface with international orthopaedic societies with a similar focus on Hip and Knee surgery and patient care will serve to further our core mission and yours. For that reason, we have developed the co-branded meeting to foster a direct exchange of knowledge and information between AAHKS and international societies, create lasting professional and social connections between AAHKS and participating societies and their members, as well as broadening the reach of our educational mission. The Co-Branded meetings are intended to create lasting relationships between our societies and, as importantly, our members.
If your society has interest in partnering with AAHKS for a Co-Branded Meeting, please read our Co-Branded Meeting Contract and send a completed letter of intent as directed in the contract.
