46th Annual Scientific Meeting
May 5-6, 2023 

Due to the long standing relationship with the United States Section of the International College of Surgeons (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 a minimum of 8 hours of category 1 credit specifically related to our major surgical specialties. A total of approximately 20 credits will be available for the entire meeting (starts May 4th), including practice management and ethics sessions.
