AAOS' Advocacy page for more information .
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
