This is a reminder to all of you who deal with orthopedic injuries and trauma on a routine basis-we will be hosting a long weekend conference in Charlotte in a few weeks. We already have over 200 attendees signed up but there is still room for a few more. Don't delay, sign up soon while there is still space available! This is going to be a great conference! You can find more information and view the brochure on PAOS.org under cme. I hope to see you there.
I am happy to say that thanks to the efforts of Krista Bartlett, we have reached out to every PA school nationwide to inform them of our offerings. As a result, we have the largest number of student members, EVER! We also have OVER 60 applicants for this years SLM scholarships, another record! I am very proud of these accomplishments, and look forward to congratulating the scholarship winners. Good luck to all of you who have entered!
Regarding our LMS: I have to apologize. I feel like I have let you down and I hate this! We were supposed to have this system online and functioning weeks ago, but there has been one issue after another and it is still not ready. I am hoping to roll this out by next month.... For all of the attendees who are awaiting the SA from Arizona, I apologize to you. We want to have this content in the LMS so that we do not have two separate systems to keep track of. I ask for your patience and we will get it to you asap!
Apparently setting up a LMS is not only a problem for us, but the AAPA as well! We have been working with the educational team at the AAPA since last fall to get our Nashville AV online for non PAOS members. Here (click on the word Here) is the link to the Nashville AV in the CME catalog on the AAPA website.This is the first of our offerings in our collaboration with the AAPA. I am hoping this increases our exposure as an organization and gets our quality ortho cme out to a larger audience.
The ballots are now closed for 2019 PAOS BOD elections. Good luck to all of you who submitted an entry for the respective positions available in this years elections.
If you can't make it to Charlotte this year and have room for one meeting, please keep in mind our annual meeting in San Antonio this August. This will not only be a great conference with lots of skills labs on site, but also we are working on a cadaver wet lab! We don't have these often but it is an awesome benefit! Also, the JW Hill Marriott resort and spa is a great destination for families. For you golfers, the PGA tour stops here at one of the two championship level courses on property (The Valero Texas open). Best of all, you can get two things for the price of one; a great conference and a fun family vacation! Nothing like floating down the lazy river in an inner tube with a pinkie droo in your hand! And I didn't even mention the Alamo and the river walk!
I hope you are having a good spring and thanks for your membership! Until next month...
