Faculty Tasks and Deadlines:


The American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) requires all faculty, instructors, planners, reviewers, managers and other individuals in a position to control or influence the content of an activity to disclose all relevant financial relationships or affiliations. All identified conflicts of interest must be resolved, and the educational content thoroughly vetted by AOFAS for fair balance, scientific objectivity and appropriateness of patient care recommendations. The AOFAS also requires faculty, authors to disclose when off-label/unapproved uses of a product are discussed in a CME activity or included in related materials.

Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria for promotional speakers’ bureau, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.

All faculty are REQUIRED to have a current disclosure on file with the AAOS Orthopaedic Disclosure Program. Faculty disclosures must be updated every 12 months to remain current.
