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.
