Traveling Fellowship Program

 

The 2020 application period is now closed. Congratulations to the 2020 Traveling Fellows listed below!

The Traveling Fellowship Program offers a special opportunity for mid-career AOFAS members to attend the AOFAS Annual Meeting and visit leading foot and ankle research and educational institutions. The program is open to AOFAS Active, Candidate, and International Members who are 49 years old or younger at the time of application. 

At host sites, Traveling Fellows will observe operating rooms, learn new surgical techniques alongside accomplished surgeons, and present their own research and clinical experiences. The program aims to promote professional relationships, exchange ideas, and encourage new thinking on research and clinical care topics.
