Orthopaedic Institute of Medicine (OIOM)

The Orthopaedic Institute of Medicine's overall objective is to provide focused, in-depth, unbiased education, information, and recommendations on issues critical to the profession of orthopaedics and the care of patients with musculoskeletal disease or injury that also impact other disciplines/specialties and/or health care providers.

The OIOM Council gathers individuals with a variety of perspectives, training and positions who have knowledge and experience on selected study topics to serve on OIOM Task Forces to review existing literature and develop consensus around recommendations to guide the profession.

To ensure the independent perspective of OIOM, no organization - including the AOA - can alter or approve/reject the final work product of the Task Force. By maintaining this separation, there is increased credibility to the unbiased work of OIOM and its Task Force.
