Participate in three (3) virtual meetings during 2024 that we organize across MedTech leaders to facilitate conversation between select AOC Chairs, AOC Board Members, AOC Executives and MedTech.

This is CRITICAL conversation that will enhance positioning of participants and provide access to our most desired and influential leaders:

  1. How can we work together to more effectively evaluate new technology?  
  2. How can we work together more effectively to scale education (for trainees and for our surgeons) around this new technology?
