LFP cultivates future leaders
Established in December 2001, the LFP identifies future leaders and prepares them to assume roles of responsibility within AAOS.
The LFP combines didactic leadership training with an ongoing mentoring program that matches the participants with an established leader within the orthopaedic community. As advisor and confidant, a Mentor fosters a close professional and personal relationship that continues throughout the fellowship year and beyond.
At the 2005 AAOS Annual Meeting, the newly selected LFP Fellows will attend an orientation session, meet with their Mentors and attend a graduation ceremony for the LFP class of 2004/2005.
