The AAOS International Surgical Skills Scholarship Program is intended to provide US surgical skills access to deserving orthopaedic surgeons from diverse regions of the world. Four to six scholarships are awarded each year to eligible orthopaedists with the intended purpose to travel to the United States to attend an AAOS Orthopaedic Learning Center (OLC) hands-on surgical skills course. Each recipient selects a 2- to 2.5-day course offered by AAOS. As part of the scholarship program experience, scholars are offered one- or two-day hospital and private practice visits designed to further enhance their overall scholarship program experiences in the United States. The entire scholarship experience will take between six to seven days.
