AOA seeks fellowship applicants
The American Orthopaedic Association (AOA) is seeking applications from orthopaedists for fellowship consideration. The C. Howard Hatcher Pathology Fellowship seeks an individual in the United States or abroad who has completed an orthopaedic surgery residency program or its equivalent. It specifically provides grant support to fellowships that do not have existing funds. Applicants must obtain a fellowship before seeking the support of this fund. The application deadline is Dec. 10, 2005.
Applications for the 2007 ABC Traveling Fellowship to Australia, Great Britain and New Zealand are being accepted from U.S. and Canadian orthopaedists. The tour is open to orthopaedic surgeons who are board certified and less than 45 years old, as of Dec. 31, 2006. Applications are due Dec. 15, 2005.
The AOA-North American Traveling Fellowship (supported by Synthes) promotes clinical and scientific exchange and fellowship. It extends four to five weeks in the Fall of odd years and includes travel to orthopaedic centers around the United States and Canada. To be eligible for the 2007 tour, applicants must have completed orthopaedic training (including residency and fellowships) no earlier than June 30, 2003. Applicants who entered directly into military service must have completed approved orthopaedic training no earlier than June 30, 2002. The application deadline for this fellowship is Dec. 15, 2006.
