2020 IAOS Orthopaedic Symposium Cancellation

The Irish-American Orthopaedic Society Board of Directors has decided that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is in the best interest of all our attendees and faculty that the 2020 IAOS Symposium in Dublin, Ireland be cancelled. While we are very sad that we won’t be seeing you all in August, we greatly appreciate everyone’s eagerness to support the meeting…from surgeons and members to our valued industry vendors and suppliers.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that the Notre Dame vs Navy Football Game will be rescheduled at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium in the Fall of 2022! We look forward to setting up our  IAOS Orthopaedic Symposium to coincide with attending the game!

IAOS Cocktail Reception and Meeting Plans for 2021

We are certainly looking forward to gathering together again for our Annual IAOS Cocktail Reception during the AAOS Annual Meeting being held next year in beautiful San Diego, California on March 9-13, 2021.

The Next IAOS General Meeting will be held in September, 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

Additional details will be posted on the website as they are available!
