We are pleased to inform you that the 27th Annual Graduate Orthodontic Residents Program (GORP) will be held Thursday, July 30–Sunday, August 2nd, 2015. Once again, we are inviting all orthodontic residents from the United States and Canada to attend. The meeting will be held in St. Louis, Missouri on the campus of Saint Louis University.
GORP began in 1989 as a means of bringing the orthodontists of the future together for a summer meeting, creating an environment to foster professional growth and interpersonal relationships among colleagues and representatives of the orthodontic industry. Over the past 26 years, the meeting has grown to an event that involves nearly 500 orthodontic residents from the United States and Canada. Starting this year, the meeting will be held every other year at Saint Louis University with the alternate years at the University of Michigan. Past meetings also have been held at the University of North Carolina, Harvard University, University of Texas at Houston, University of Illinois at Chicago, The Ohio State University, University of Toronto, University of Kentucky, University of Washington and the University of Minnesota.
This program is unique in that it is the first annual conference to bring together residents in a dental or medical specialty program. The meeting is sponsored by donations from orthodontic exhibitors, the American Board of Orthodontics and its constituent associations, and the American Association of Orthodontists Foundation.
The orthodontic residents of Saint Louis University look forward to hosting another excellent GORP meeting, and we hope to welcome as many individuals as possible to this year’s event. If you have any questions, please see the contacts link below for more information; please to do not hesitate to contact us.
On behalf of the residents, we look forward to seeing you in St. Louis.
