The Hip Society is committed to increasing the sex, gender, race, religious and ethnic diversity within its members, reflective of the communities we serve. The Hip Society believes that by fostering diversity and inclusivity within our organization we will be better able to serve our patients, the orthopaedic community and our profession.

The Hip Society and The Knee Society are proud to launch a new mentorship program focused on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  Our organizations are committed to fostering the next generation of leaders in arthroplasty from underrepresented segments of our orthopaedic community.  Whether your participation in this program leads you down the path of membership in The Hip Society and/or The Knee Society, it is sure to broaden your exposure to some of the world’s most recognized and respected names in our field, to facilitate personal connections, and for us – to enrich our organizations through new and lasting relationships and thought exchange with emerging leaders.

Deadline to apply for the program was June 1, 2023. Additional applications will not be accepted at this time.  Check back soon for information on the next cycle.  (This mentorship program is for orthopaedic surgeons practicing in the US and Canada only.)
