Annual Meeting

2023 IAOS Orthopaedic Symposium

September 7, 2023

Our IAOS 2023 Dublin Orthopaedic Symposium was a tremendous success, and we were happy to offer our attendees 12 CPD Credits through the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

To our many honored speakers who enlightened us with their timely, informative presentations, we thank you for sharing your valuable time with us all. And we'd like to give a special thanks to our Site Chairman, Dr. Derek Bennett, and our Program Co-Chairs, Dr. Ruth Delaney and Dr. Robert McLaughlin II.

The Irish-American Orthopaedic Society’s mission is to celebrate our rich Irish heritage while expanding orthopaedic knowledge, fostering goodwill and cooperation, and bettering the lives of those we reach. The timely knowledge that we shared during our 2023 Dublin meeting and the welcoming comradery we experienced contributes to the many ways we strive to achieve the goals we have set forth in our worthwhile mission.

Thank you for attending!

Michael P. Muldoon, MD
President, IAOS
