JOURNAL OF CLINICAL ORTHOPAEDICS - THE BOS JOURNAL

Rapid developments in all the subspecialties of orthopaedics means an explosion of knowledge. In our constant quest to keep up with it, we would invite and encourage the members of our society to submit their work through the manuscripts and papers to our Peer Reviewed Journal.

We understand that the challenges in the subcontinent are different and so are the demands of our patients. Hence, we at the BOS wish to make this as a platform for our members and other orthopaedic surgeons to find solutions for problems that they can identify with, literature that speaks their language and knowledge that is relevant to practise in the subcontinent.

There will be a multitude of reasons to publish and a basic motive is to share knowledge with colleagues. We invite you to submit your manuscript under the relevant sub specialities.

Kindly Visit our website, www.bombayorth.org to know more about the Journal of Clinical Orthopaedics.

BOS WEBSITE

The BOS website underwent a complete design overhaul last year to simplify and streamline the process of registration for Instructional Courses.

In alignment with the goals of the society, the BOS website intends to ramp up the online educational and CME activities. The website will continue to update its members of the society's activities and publish reports and updates as it has done in the past.

The BOS also intends to publish a recorded version of " Master Series " lectures, which would be available online on the website.  The goal is to create high quality web based educational content for members at par with any orthopaedic educational society of repute across the globe.
