IFFAS 7th Triennial Scientific Meeting Update

Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, the IFFAS Triennial Meeting in Viña del Mar, Chile, has been postponed to April 28-30, 2022. The IFFAS board made the decision in order to keep the spirit of such an important meeting that is expected to bring together the latest scientific knowledge in foot and ankle, plus the friendship and networking that makes us such a unique society. Paid registrations will be moved to the new date. Thank you very much for your understanding and support!

Letter from the IFFAS President - July 2021

Dear friends:

Our educational program is holding on strongly. Every Federation has already organized an IFFAS webinar and we are exploring new partnerships to move forward.

Our 2022 meeting is going to be held as face to face event, as we are all expecting. Everyone has been supportive, including companies, speakers and attendees. You may update the paper you sent, change it for a new one or your may send an entirely new abstract. We will reshape the whole program to include all the new hot topics that have came up recently.

We are also planning to have IFFAS fellowships, either as a visitor or a complete program that may include different centers. I would very much appreciate if you can consider to be part of this interesting collaboration between different groups.

Let´s continue to improve our scientific goal including everyone´s new ideas.
