Visiting Professor Program

The American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society is pleased to sponsor a Visiting Professor Program for orthopaedic residency training programs. The program goal is to enhance the educational experience of orthopaedic residents through a Visiting Professor's participation in clinics, lectures and/or grand rounds.

​​Residency training programs without full-time orthopaedic foot and ankle faculty are given first priority in the application process. Senior members of the AOFAS, including board members, serve as Visiting Professors, and AOFAS staff members work with host institutions on dates and availability. 

The Visiting Professor Program is funded by the Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Foundation, supported in part by a grant from Wright Medical Technology, Inc.
