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

The inaugural RA Open Forum
was held at the 2016 Annual Meeting. All residents are invited to attend the
Open Forum to discuss proposed Actions to be brought before the Resident
Assembly the following day. An Action is defined as an initiative/opportunity
for residents or a stance taken on resident issues. At the open forum,
residents will have the chance to present Actions they have sponsored and
discuss Actions proposed by other residents and educational programs. This is
an exciting opportunity for residents to make a difference in the AAOS. An
informational webinar will be held prior to the deadline to submit Action
Items (January of 2017).
Resident Assembly Delegates will vote on
Action Items at the Annual Meeting.
