Alliance Societies

The treatment of musculoskeletal problems in children is a global issue. The Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgical Societies (Alliance Societies) are interested in partnering with POSNA to improve the musculoskeletal health of children worldwide.

The membership and Board of Directors of the Alliance Society and POSNA must approve partnerships. There are no special annual dues. Members of POSNA and the Alliance Societies may attend each society’s annual meetings, continuing education courses, and present scientific papers.
