AAOS, China begin new era of cooperation, education

By Lynne Dowling and Carolyn Rogers

A recent signing ceremony held at the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Beijing heralded a new era of partnership and cooperation for the AAOS, the Chinese Orthopaedic Association (COA), and the People’s Medical Publishing House (PMPH)—China’s largest medical publisher.

Although the Academy has been active in the Chinese-language medical book market for some time, the August 2007 ceremony solidified the relationship of the three entities. The Academy and PMPH signed a letter of intent to enter into a publishing partnership that will begin in 2008 with the introduction of a monograph series co-authored by American and Chinese orthopaedic surgeons. Over time, more titles and products will be added to the mix of educational offerings.
