For residents and fellows the IPOS Faculty offer a Breakout Session entitled “Career Planning and Professional Development for Orthopaedic Residents and Fellows.” This is an informal group discussion between residents, fellows and faculty on Tuesday evening, the first day of IPOS. This session is appropriate for all residents considering any specialty or fellowship, not just Pediatric Orthopaedics.
This is an open forum for any and all questions about life and work as an Orthopaedic surgeon. Featured presentations include “Making the Most of your Fellowship”, “Your First Job: Finding the Right Fit”, and “Balancing Professional and Personal Life” and “Balancing Research and Clinical Practice” given by leaders in Pediatric Orthopaedics. Attendees typically find the free flowing Question and Answer Session the highlight of this Breakout.
The application process for tuition scholarships is now closed.

Returning this year with a different format, Lunchtime Cases will connect IPOS faculty and attendees to discuss real cases over lunch! We are looking for unique cases that highlight a specific problem encountered in pediatric orthopaedic surgery. If you are interested, please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words with up to 5 clinical images (photographs or imaging studies).
Cases will be reviewed by our faculty panel and, if selected, will be prepared and presented on a laptop or tablet at a table over lunch. The author can present the case, which will be moderated and discussed by our instructors and faculty.
LUNCHTIME CASES SUBMISSION is now closed.
