Greetings Members and Friends:

We look forward to seeing you and your families at the Annual Spring Meeting, the 59th AOAO Postgraduate Seminar, in beautiful Lake Buena Vista, Florida, April 12-14, 2019 at the Disney Yacht & Beach Club Resort. This is a wonderful time to visit central Florida with your families where you can plan your own Disney experience in many of the theme parks and earn your CME.

This year’s theme is “Nuts and Bolts for the General Orthopedic Surgeon”.  The program will address standard orthopedic techniques that are tried and true as well as other topics of interest. In addition, this year we will try something new: A Board Review for those taking Part I of the AOBOS Certification exam as well as those preparing for recertification. The AOAO CME Committee, led by Dennis Blackburn, DO, FAOAO, along with a dedicated group of moderators have developed another outstanding educational program. As leaders in our profession, the CME Committee strives to fortify our knowledge base while offering 20 hours of AOA Category 1-A credits. Watch for updates to the meeting information in this Mobile Meeting Guide.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy fellowship with old and new colleagues and meet new members of the AOAO. Registrants, of course, will also have the opportunity to view the latest products in the exhibit hall and visit with the representatives that help support our educational endeavors. I look forward to seeing you all in Florida!

Gregory Hill, DO, FAOAO
Program Chair
