AOC Connect Women’s Leadership Forum

Open to all interested AOC Connect members, the AOC Connect Women’s Leadership Forum presents best practices and fresh perspectives on the dynamic leadership challenges of today’s academic orthopaedic enterprises.

The Forum is made possible by the generous support of Breg, Inc., a market leader in orthopaedic device manufacturing and DME program management, and a long-time sponsor of the AOC.

The AOC Women’s Leadership Forum will be led by Kelly Rosenfeld, Chief Administrative Officer for the Department of Orthopedics at Wake Forest University, and Theresa Wyrick, MD, Vice Chair, Department of Orthopaedics, UAMS.

Every month we mix it up with webinars, fireside chats, book groups, and more — all highly interactive and all intended to deliver high value for your time.

To register for these events, log in to your account or Join AOC Connect now —it’s FREE.
