25th EORS Anniversary

2017 is an exceptional year due to the 25th EORS Anniversary.
A celebration-dedicated session will be held to glance at the society establishment, development and future.

Women Leadership & Representation (WLR)

Chair: Dr. Jeannette Penny

Due to the acknowledged facts that 51% of the global population is female, 59% of University diplomas are held by women, 61% of PhD are held by women (as per report from the European Commission), we believe that Female Leadership and Representation in Orthopaedics is a very important and relevant subject in EORS 2017.

A WLR-Session will be organized with Adhiambo Witlox as Keynote Speaker.

Young Investigator (YI)

Chair: Dr. Gianluca Vadalà
