The Orthopaedic PAC: Advocacy in action

By Francesca Gage

In 1999, the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) established the Orthopaedic Political Action Committee (PAC). Since then, the interest and involvement of AAOS fellows in the PAC have steadily increased.

During the 2009–2010 election cycle, the Orthopaedic PAC has raised more than $3.3 million, and as of July 30, 2010, it has more than 4,500 contributors. This makes it the largest medical PAC in the United States—exceeding even the American Medical Association’s PAC.
