for the Resident Assembly Meeting All residents are invited to
attend. Let your voice be heard!
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.
