The AAOS Resident Assembly is an advisory body to the AAOS on
issues of importance to orthopaedic residents and designed as a forum to allow
orthopaedic residents to embrace their roles as patient advocates and life-long
Each residency program is asked to nominate one Resident to be
the Resident Delegate to the Resident Assembly. Each year, the Resident
Delegate is invited to attend the AAOS Resident Assembly Annual Meeting at the
AAOS Annual meeting (Thursday afternoon) as the voting representative
for his/her orthopaedic residency program. All residents are also invited to
attend this meeting and be part of the Resident Assembly. This individual will periodically receive correspondence from
the Academy concerning resident programs or activities that directly relate to
their resident colleagues. They are asked to forward the information to their
fellow residents and provide feedback to the Academy. Resident delegates as well as residents have the opportunity to
serve in leadership positions within the Resident Assembly: Chair, Vice-Chair
of Administration, and committee chairs. Committees are available for delegates
and residents interested in the areas of education, health policy, practice
management, research and technology.
If your program does not have a delegate listed and you wish to
volunteer, please fill out the Resident Delegate application form . If you have
any questions, or would like to return your completed form, please e-mail Kristen Erickson
or Erin Volland
at the Academy.
