AOFAS has partnered with the European Foot & Ankle Society (EFAS) to develop the EFAS/AOFAS Exchange Program. Through the program, three EFAS members each year will attend AOFAS Annual Meeting and travel to prominent orthopaedic foot and ankle institutions in the US and Canada. In turn, three AOFAS members will attend the EFAS Congress or Advance Symposium and visit foot and ankle sites in Europe. At each site, Exchange Fellows will meet
leaders in foot and ankle surgery, observe procedures in operating rooms, and share research and ideas.
The Exchange Fellowship will last approximately 25 days. For our inaugural program, AOFAS Exchange Fellows will travel to Barcelona, Spain; Grenoble, France; and Munich, Germany, in November/December 2023. The EFAS Exchange Fellows will visit Boston,
Massachusetts; New York, New York; and Charlotte, North Carolina, in September/October 2023.
