Welcome to CAOM

by | Aug 30, 2019 | News and Events

Warm welcome to the Canadian Association of Orthopaedic Medicine, and our new website. I am Dr. Jannice Bowler, current president. As a special promotion to celebrate the new site, we are extending our CAOM conference early-bird registration to September 13, 2019. Please take advantage of this if you haven’t already done so, and check out our conference page for more details.

Visit the 2019 Conference page >>

Below you can see the “Canadian Contingent” attending the Guadalajara “Brigada” of the HHPF mission a few years’ back. There are lots of ways to get involved in the world of regenerative medicine, learning, teaching, gaining more experience and enjoying friendships. Here we have Drs. Adrian Gretton, David Bowler, Jannice Bowler, Lanice Jones goofing it up, and Lorraine Croft.


Members can see our training standards document for more information. inside our Members Only section, which requires a password (supplied to paid-up members during renewal or signing up), rather than a full log-in. And we will be publishing relevant studies and articles, as well as news features, to keep you up to date with what is happening, and a recommended books section for your interest.

I hope you enjoy the new website and please encourage your colleagues in the world of musculoskeletal pain medicine to visit it as well.

Finally, please spread the word about our annual conference coming up October 25 -27 in Victoria, BC. You can see the full schedule here. I hope to see you there!

CAOM President
