After much consideration, we have decided to proceed with our plans to celebrate another great year for the Department and the Class of 2020 as they begin their careers as military orthopaedic surgeons. We have confirmed that former Chairman, Jim Ficke (Fac Mbr) will be braving commercial air to join us as the Distinguished Visiting Professor for an excellent scientific program set up by Andy Sheean (2016). The 22nd Annual George E. Omer, Jr. Research Symposium will be from 0730-1530 on Thursday, 25 June. The preliminary program can be found here. Follow this link to the form for those interested in donating to the Association.
We will again hold the Annual Golf Tournament at La Cantera Palmer Course, Friday morning, 26 June. Anticipate an 0800 scramble start. The alternate spa day plans will continue to be evaluated.
Obviously, things may change depending on the local environment and any resurgence of COVID-19 cases. But Texas is opening up so we look forward to our faculty, residents, friends, family, alumni and industry sponsors sharing this event with us yet again.
