Traveling Fellowship Program

The Traveling Fellowship Program offers a special opportunity for early-career AOFAS members to attend the AOFAS Annual Meeting and visit leading foot and ankle research and educational institutions. The program is open to AOFAS Active Members, Candidate Members, and International Members who are 45 years old or younger at the time of application.

At host sites, Traveling Fellows will observe operating rooms, learn new surgical techniques alongside accomplished surgeons, and present their own research and clinical experiences. The program aims to promote professional relationships, exchange ideas, and encourage new thinking on research and clinical care topics.


The 2018 Traveling Fellowship application cycle has closed.
Watch for the 2019 application to be posted in fall 2018.
