CORS Programs

The CORS Annual Meeting is held in conjunction with the COA Annual Meeting.

In 1994, a lectureship was named in honour of CORS founder, Dr. Ian Macnab. The first lecture was delivered by Dr. Edward H. Simmons at the CORS Annual Meeting that was held in Winnipeg that same year. The lectureship is still continued today.

The CORS Executive reviews the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation’s orthopaedic research grant applications (including the J. Edouard Samson Award), and select the recipient of the CORS Founders’ Medal (most outstanding paper presented at a CORS meeting).
