Selected by the Leadership Development Committee, the Leadership Fellows Program (LFP) class of 2014–2015 consists of 10 new LFP fellows.
Established in December 2001, the LFP is a 1-year program that identifies future leaders and prepares them to assume roles of responsibility within AAOS. The LFP combines didactic leadership training with an ongoing mentoring program that matches each participant with an established leader within the orthopaedic community. The mentor and fellow foster a close professional and personal relationship that continues throughout the fellowship year and beyond.
The program provides many benefits for participating fellows, such as being involved in educational programs to enhance leadership skills and learning how the AAOS is organized and functions.
The 2014–2015 class will hold its orientation during the Annual Meeting in March 2014 in New Orleans.
