Two Washington Health Policy Fellowships available
Orthopaedic residents interested in health policy issues are urged to apply for the 2007 AAOS Washington Health Policy Fellowship Program. This program provides an opportunity for senior orthopaedic residents and orthopaedists-in-training to participate in and understand health policy processes at the federal level. Fellows actively contribute to the formulation of national health policies and accelerate their careers as leaders in health policy.
Up to two orthopaedic residents will have the opportunity to work in the legislative and regulatory arena for a multi-week period during a 12-month time-frame. Please note: While flexible, the fellowship requires a considerable time commitment. Attendance at some AAOS meetings, such as the National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference, is required. The AAOS Washington Office will work with the selected applicants to design a flexible program that meets the fellows’ needs, interests and schedules. The deadline for submitting applications is Sept. 15, 2006. Applications and additional information are available online.
