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.
For 2024, AOFAS Exchange Fellows will travel in October 2024, attending the 2024 EFAS Biennial Congress in Brussels, Belgium (October 17-19); and visiting Antwerp, Belgium; Verona, Italy; and Liestal, Switzerland.
The EFAS Exchange Fellows will travel from September 10-October 5, 2024, attending AOFAS Annual Meeting 2024 in Vancouver, Canada; and visiting the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada; University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah; and Cedars-Sinai
in Los Angeles, California.
