The 2020-2021 Presidential Year is About….

Dr. Mohit Bhandari and the COA leadership are focussed on reconnecting with COA members this year. Events of the past year have shaken the world and impacted so many of our connections – including those with the COA. Although we may not be able to physically gather with everyone, these connections, conversations and opportunities can still happen through virtual means and on a more personal scale. Dr. Bhandari and various members of the COA leadership will reconnect with the orthopaedic community from coast to coast, cities to townships, north to south, current members and non-members, residents to retirees. We promise to listen, learn, share insights, and act in whatever capacity we can. Our Canada-wide “ReCOAnnect 2020-2021” virtual tour is now on the road!

If you and colleagues from your region would like participate in the tour, please contact to schedule a virtual chat.
