Piedmont Orthopedic Society

Upon graduation, Duke orthopaedic residents become members of the Piedmont Orthopedic Society, the oldest and largest orthopaedic alumni association in America. Founded in 1951, this society has over 700 members, many of whom participate in an annual five-day scientific meeting. Over the years, this society’s foundation has awarded over 120 grants to residents in their research.

Induction into this group of life-long learners includes access to an annual meeting and alumni reunions at events such as the AAOS annual meeting and the annual meeting of the Piedmont Society.
