41st Annual Scientific Meeting

June 16-17, 2017 – Marriott Hotel (Airport), Seattle, WA

Due to the long standing relationship with the United States Section of ICS (ICSUS)  the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons (the Academy) has once again designated the ICSUS Annual Surgical Update as the Academy Annual Scientific Meeting. Working closely with members of the Academy’s Scientific Organizing Committee to determine professional practice gaps and educational need, ICSUS planners  are developing two days of programming that will provide approximately 8-10 hours of category 1 credit specifically related to our major surgical specialties. A total of 19 credits will be available for the entire meeting, including practice management and ethics sessions.


 

Scientific Program

The following speakers and topics are currently scheduled to be presented during sessions on Friday, June 16th and Saturday June 17th. Sessions will run from 8am until noon on both days. Other sessions of general interest will be presented by ICSUS in the afternoon on both days. See the full program by clicking the following link…
