Message from President
Welcome to the POPS website. We are so glad you are here to explore everything POPS has to offer! This organization is comprised of pediatric orthopedic APPs from across the country and is lead by an amazing, diverse volunteer board. Our members are experienced in many different subspecialties within pediatric orthopedics. Specialization, expertise and abundant collaboration is what sets our members and organization apart from others. Our organization offers numerous networking, educational and research related opportunities as well as leadership development for the novice to the experienced pediatric orthopedic APP.
Over the past several months you have probably noticed some changes in the POPS website and social media presence. As you navigate through the new website, we hope you find the information easy to locate and beneficial. Please revisit the site regularly for updates on events, educational opportunities, scholarship information and many other ways you can become involved.
As we finalize plans for our upcoming conference in Nashville, TN this April and begin planning the APP presence at IPOS 2023 as well as the POPS 2024 conference in Washington, DC we hope that you will consider becoming more connected with and involved with this amazing organization.
