About the Event

The 19th Annual Conference of the Physician Assistants in Orthopaedic Surgery (PAOS) is soon arriving and will be taking place in America’s Music City, Nashville, TN. Door to door with the Country Music Hall of Fame the conference will be held at the Omni Nashville Hotel. The week will be filled with educational and updated CME lectures combined with multiple workshops for hands on learning. In addition to the quality education that our conference consistently provides, there will be access to the nation’s country music history within walking distance.

We will be arranging several symposiums and workshops that allow for in depth knowledge updates in several top orthopaedic topics. We will be recruiting speakers from some of the top medical institutions within the area that includes Vanderbilt University Medical Center. We will also be engaging with other orthopaedic groups that support the local professional and college athletic programs to get up to date orthopaedic knowledge on best practices.

The Omni Nashville is located in the heart of Nashville convenient to the Ryman Auditorium, Music City, Walk of Fame, and many country music museums. One block walking distance from the Omni Nashville is Broadway Street which possesses many good country eateries combined with live music for entertainment. Social events will be available planned through PAOS to provide additional venues for entertainment and access to the town.

I look forward to our annual conference, visiting the Music City, and meeting up with you all. I hope to see you there!
