Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Continuing Medical Education Committee has started our planning for the 18th Annual Conference of the Physician Assistants in Orthopaedic Surgery (PAOS). As the Chairman, I’m excited to bring the conference to my hometown of Baltimore! We have signed the contract with the Hilton - Baltimore and will be holding the conference from August 21st - 25th, 2017. The Hilton-Baltimore overlooks Camden Yards and is nestled in the middle of Inner Harbor. It’s in walking distance to all that Baltimore has to offer, to include the National Aquarium, Fort McHenry, Horseshoe Casino, Power Plant, Little Italy, and all the Sports Complexes. We are planning social events that will show you all that the town has to offer!
Baltimore is a city rich with culture, history, athletics, and has continually been an epicenter of research and development for medicine and Orthopaedics. Our committee is working diligently recruiting quality speakers from well known institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Baltimore Shock Trauma, and other orthopaedic groups supporting the professional and college athletic programs. We anticipate the same high-quality speaker lineup that we saw last year in Scottsdale, Arizona.
With our conference’s proven reputation and quality education, we hope you will join us for what is expected to be another memorable event. I look forward to showing you my hometown and providing you another educational and entertaining CME Conference. We’ll see you in Baltimore!!!
