Celebrate with AAOS Learn, interact, and have fun with these 75th Anniversary projects

Travel the Digital Timeline
This must-see Digital Timeline takes viewers on an interactive, historical adventure where they can view more than 1,500 events that have taken place over the history of orthopaedics.

Thanks to generous input from a wide range of physicians, patients, researchers, and industry and specialty groups, the Academy was able to create a series of multi-layered, interactive, online digital timelines that dramatically illustrate the history of orthopaedic specialty. The timelines incorporate still images, audio and video clips, and text. One comprehensive database contains all of the timelines, which can be viewed singly or sorted according to 15 specialty and topic areas.

At the Annual Meeting, the Digital Timeline will debut on eight 56-inch plasma screens positioned end-to-end, spanning 40 feet at Moscone Center North. Viewers can use video-game-like controllers to swing through the decades of orthopaedic history.
