Here’s What YOU Said About the 2017 Annual Meeting


he 2017 COA, CORS and CORA Annual Meeting was held in Ottawa this past June during Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations. Over 480 surgeons, 225 residents and fellows and 130 allied health professionals attended the meeting in our nation’s capital where the Program Committee, chaired by Dr. Peter Lapner, offered a high quality and diverse educational program.
