Dear Colleagues,
It gives me a great pleasure to announce the 4th annual edition of the Middle East Pediatric Orthopedic Society (MEPOS) Annual Meeting to be held in Dubai, UAE from 12 - 14 October 2017.
It’s an exciting time for this young society as we continue to grow and adapt, motivated and responsive to the need of the child healthcare and for children to have a normal musculoskeletal growth.
The world of the growing skeleton is a stimulating area in which to work, study, and play, and we’ll continue to meet and bring together inspired people in forums like this, to ensure that MEPOS remains at the cutting edge.
The Scientific Committee is working on an inspiring scientific program including: workshops, panel discussions, keynote lectures, free papers and case discussions from around the world.
This year’s MEPOS meeting is meant to cover the interest of:
  • Orthopaedic Surgeons, Consultants and Specialists
  • Sports Medicine Specialists
  • Orthopaedic Nurses
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Pediatricians
  • Speech and Language Therapists
  • Neonatologists
  • Students / Trainees / Interns
  • Other Physicians / Consultants and Specialists Interested in Pediatric Orthopaedics

This year the MEPOS Annual Meeting will also host the 2nd edition of the Middle East Pediatric Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Seminar and the inaugural edition of the Middle East Pediatric Community Health Seminar.

I am indeed very delighted to be able to serve this society, and I look forward to your active participation in this important annual gathering that will contribute to raise the level of child health care from an orthopedic point of view.

Kind regards,

Dr. Zaid Al-Aubaidi
