The Overseas Outreach Project to Kenya takes place in Kijabe, Kenya, at the AIC CURE Kenya Hospital. The
CURE hospital is primarily pediatric orthopaedics with some elective adult surgery.
AOFAS volunteers work alongside well-trained Kenyan attending and resident orthopaedic surgeons in both the operating room and clinic, providing much-needed education in adult foot and ankle surgery. Volunteers may be asked
to do formal presentations along with teaching in clinical situations.
Applications are now open for two surgeons to participate in the 2023 trip to Kenya, which will take place October 9-13. Submit your application by Friday, June 16, at 5:00 pm Central Time (UTC-5).
AOFAS Active, Candidate, and International Members may apply. Participants are responsible for their own airfare to travel to Kenya before and after the experience. In-country expenses for food, lodging, travel, and logistics are covered by the Orthopaedic
Foot & Ankle Foundation.
The inaugural trip to Kenya was in October 2019 and the second trip took place in November 2022. Read about the 2019 and 2022 Kenya Projects.
