August 1997 AAOS Report

Fellows to travel overseas to conduct review courses

Ten Academy fellows traveled to Rio de Janeiro in July to conduct an Orthopaedic Review Course for more than 300 Brazilian and Argentine orthopaedic surgeons. In November, the Academy will conduct a similar review course in Cairo, Egypt in a cooperative effort with the Egyptian Orthopaedic Association. All expenses for the July course were fully funded by the Brazilian Society for Orthopaedics and Traumatology (SBOT). "The enthusiasm and responsiveness of course participants was excellent, and our Brazilian hosts outdid themselves to make us feel welcome," said course chairman Joseph P. Leddy, MD. This course was the culmination of a year-long planning and organizational effort between the Academy's International Committee and SBOT.
