For research

The International Hip Society is committed to worldwide education and the dissemination of up-to-date research and innovation in hip disorders and hip surgery. The research presented at meetings of the International Hip Society is of the highest quality and encompasses the full breadth of hip surgery including hip preservation, arthroplasty surgery and revision. Our membership includes basic scientists and active clinicians. The research is disseminated through abstracts published in proceedings and publication of selected papers after peer review for every meeting.

For education

The members of the International Hip Society are usually leaders in training, teaching, and education in their respective countries and many have an outstanding track record of education and dissemination worldwide. Every effort is made to translate the material presented at International Hip Society meetings into abstracts and papers that can be translated into clinical practice worldwide. The International Hip Society is happy to contribute sessions at International Meetings in order to encourage excellent care in hip surgery worldwide.

For collaboration

The International Hip Society fosters collaboration internationally. Its members are selected based on their activities in hip surgery and their academic and research profiles. We have been careful to ensure that there is a wide geographical representation and that the interactions of the International Hip Society consider the worldwide picture rather than be focused on the needs and considerations of one area alone. The International Hip Society has a cycle of meetings with alternating closed meetings and open meetings such that there is interaction between its members and colleagues in other societies in order to disseminate the outstanding research that is undertaken by International Hip Society members and their teams.
