The AAOS Office of Government Relations has established a new Advocacy Fellows Program for residents. We are now accepting applications for 2018. The goal is to encourage the participation of orthopaedic residents in the national health policy arena. The program seeks to foster the development of orthopaedic surgeons interested in health policy and advocacy who are willing to become key members of the AAOS advocacy team. It offers orthopaedic residents the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the health policy process and contribute to the development of new policies and programs. Dr. Stuart Weinstein, former Chairman of the AAOS Political Action Committee, is directing the program.
Two fellows will be selected for the calendar year 2018. The deadline for applications is November 15. A full description and application instructions can be found here.
