Member Benefits

Our members’ involvement and support of the Michigan Orthopaedic Society will enable our association to provide the following for you in 2019:

  • Present a minimum of 3 programs: the Annual Scientific Meeting, the Fall Education Program, the Orthopaedic Trauma program.  The MOS offers more than 20 category 1 CME credits annually.  The 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting will be at Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City for a new location.
  • Represent the society’s voice at meetings with key legislators, provide testimony at committee hearings, monitor all legislation introduced in Michigan to continue to preserve the quality of care provided today in our orthopaedic practices.  MOS PROTECTS YOUR PRACTICE FROM SCOPE OF PRACTICE EXPANSION AS WE DID WITH THE PODIATRISTS IN 2018.  MOS has continuously limited direct access by other specialties in recent years.
  • Communicate our voice on Capitol Hill in Washington preserving patient access to in-office ancillary services, and increasing Congressional awareness of the growing prevalence of musculoskeletal diseases.
  • Provide timely updates and calls to action to support state legislation through our email blasts, legislative breakfasts and meetings in representatives’ districts.
  • Enable you and your partners to present at our educational meetings on your specialty or participate in panel discussions.  In order to participate, your dues must be paid.
  • Continue to fight to preserve Michigan’s model no-fault auto insurance system and to prevent the dissolution of Michigan’s lifetime personal injury coverage for accident victims.  We have been the leading voice as an association to keep this coverage strong for over 18 years.
  • Represent members through our MOS lobbyist, Rob Elhenicky, Kelley Cawthorne on unified issues with the state medical association, CON work groups and CPAN (Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault).  You may ask for help from our network by contacting a board member or Pam Dietrich.  Communicate and receive updates through our email blasts, newsletters and our website ( that highlights the practice of our members and their specialties through our online member directory.  Do we have your correct email address so you can receive all of the updates and news on our benefits?
