September 1998 AAOS Report

Protect Academy identification number

Many sections of the web site are password-protected, accessible only with an Academy member's identification number. These special members-only sections include private discussion groups, private member directory with available e-mail addresses, Placement Service listing practice opportunities and positions wanted, poster exhibits from past Annual Meetings, Clinical Policies and articles from the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Members are encouraged never to share their identification number with nonmembers. Instead, only allow immediate office staff access to the number. A member's six-digit identification number is on any mailing label printed by the Academy or on a fellow's membership card. Academy members unable to locate their identification number can contact the member services department at (800) 346-2267, ext. 4258 for help.
