Get Involved

Participate on a Work Group

Get Involved…As a work group member, depending on the type of project, you may be required to attend in-person meetings at the AAOS Rosemont, IL headquarters.  However, when able, we do try to conduct meetings via a webinar, as we want to be considerate to our volunteers and their time commitments.  If you have further questions regarding the time commitment as a volunteer, please contact Kaitlyn Sevarino at

Nominate a Topic

Any AAOS member may nominate a topic.

The AAOS Committee on Evidence-Based Quality and Value will review all topic nominations on an annual basis.  You will be notified if your topic is selected.

Specialty Societies that wish to collaborate with AAOS, or that wish to use AAOS resources in preparing guidelines must use the AAOS methodology and processes for guideline development.
