2018 Emerging Leaders Program

The FOS Board of Directors is pleased to announce an Emerging Leaders Program to take place during the Summer of 2018.    The 2018 Program has been developed to provide this year’s class of Emerging Leaders multiple unique learning opportunities and networking events with the leadership of the Florida Orthopaedic Society and Florida Medical Association.
