Meeting programme

Full Meeting Programme including Abstracts


Meetings are designed for the communication of work in progress and as such are particularly suitable for clinician/scientists who would like feedback on their research.

Presentations are judged during the meeting and prizes are awarded for best oral and poster.


The British Orthopaedic Research Society is pleased to offer bursaries to fund registration, travel and accommodation for research students and technicians who are presenting abstracts at the Society's Scientific Meetings (the entitlement will be restricted to one bursary per annum).
The bursaries will be for a maximum of £100 and limited in number. Should the bursaries become oversubscribed, then the abstract score will be taken into account. Priority will be given to first time applicants and those who would otherwise have to self-fund their attendance. Applicants are requested to complete and fax confirmation of their eligibility detailing that their earnings are less than £19,000 per annum, verified by their line manager.  Deadline for Bursary applications is 1st August 2017.
