Innovation Programs

At AAOS, we embrace the importance of responding to change in creative ways and generating new ideas. Innovative solutions and programs are essential to support continued growth and learning throughout our orthopaedic community. We offer participation in these programs to our industry and corporate partners who want something more than our conventional outreach opportunities. Therefore, we highly encourage you to reach out to our Business Development Representatives to see what innovated ideas you might have that can become part of our innovation success! Bring us your ideas, or participate in one of our current programs!

AAOS Innovation programs include:

Resident Rumble

  • The AAOS Resident Rumble is our latest foray into virtual, online-gaming technology that pits residency programs from across the country against one another in a no-holds-barred, orthopaedics-based online trivia competition. Born out of necessity during the pandemic, we’ve created a unique opportunity to engage AAOS resident members.
  • Current sponsor DePuy Synthes

Resident Events

  • At AAOS Resident Engagement Events, sponsors bring hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies to orthopaedic residents
  • Residents network with corporate sponsors while enjoying a variety of complimentary appetizers and beverages
  • Sponsors get their brand in front of residents through pre- and post-communications and during the events
  • Upcoming events - keep an eye out for upcoming events in the future
  • Previous Sponsors: FundamentalVR, Zimmer Biomet, Pfizer, Deterra, SI Bone, Avanos, Game Ready, 3M+KCI, Brainlab

Innovation Theater

  • This high-value, live marketing opportunity is an excellent forum for promoting new product launches and emerging technology! These unique 20-minute sessions take place inside the exhibit hall during the AAOS Annual Meeting.

Innovation Channel on Orthopaedic Video Theater (OVT)

  • The Innovation Channel on OVT is an opportunity for industry partners to introduce their innovative offerings on our video platform. These presentations focus on new products or services and/or new research findings.
