The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) designates this live activity for a maximum of 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


AAHKS is committed to ensuring balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in their governance, programmatic, educational, and other activities.  Board members, educational planners, faculty and staff, and anyone involved in a CME activity must disclose all relevant financial relationships with ACCME-defined commercial interests (including those of spouses, business partners, and immediate family members) within the last 12 months that actually or potentially could predispose or bias the individual to a particular decision, view, or goal in connection with the educational activity in which he or she is engaged.

Prior to the meeting, disclosures will be available for review here.
