Piedmont Orthopedic Society 63rd Annual Meeting

Sea Island , GA US
May 7, 2015 to May 9, 2015

The Piedmont Orthopedic Society is a traditional organization of “life-long learners”   many of whom, because of their training and experience, are classified as experts.    The annual meeting is an opportunity for these learners to conduct peer presentations, as well as review and discuss many different topics.  The 63 year history attests to the continued support of this  notion of the members being  “life-long learners”.  Additionally, through peer solicitation of topics for presentation, other  assessment methods are used to discuss the material.  Ongoing clinical and research presentations  traditionally include epidemiological data; geographic data based on specific health problems of  regional importance; and morbidity and mortality statistics introduced as complications of specific procedures.  Quality Assurance statistics (QA) and/or Peer Review Data will document the need to address complications of a particular topic.  Non-academic based physicians bring patient care audits for clinical critique.  Because the Society has evolved from Duke University Medical Center trained  orthopedic physicians,  the members who now may or may not be at academic institutions still look to their peers from Duke to provide information in many different areas.
