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 our inaugural program, AOFAS Exchange Fellows will travel from November 13-December 8, 2023, visiting Hessingpark Clinic in Augsburg, Germany; Lyon University Hospital in Lyon, France; and University of Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain; and the EFAS Advance Symposium in Madrid, Spain.
The EFAS Exchange Fellows will travel from September 12-October 6, 2023, visiting sites in New York, New York; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Boston, Massachusetts, and AOFAS Annual Meeting 2023 in Louisville, Kentucky.
