Orthopaedic PAC Resident Toolkit

Resident involvement is crucial in strengthening the stature and influence of the AAOS and the Orthopaedic PAC in the nation's capital. As residents, you are the future of the orthopaedic profession. Every orthopaedist has an important role in our advocacy efforts regardless of whether you are at the beginning or end of your career. Residents offer fresh new perspectives on the challenges we face and your involvement sets a strong precedent for those around you. Simply put, we need each and every current and future member of AAOS to belong to the PAC and our ability to achieve our advocacy goals will be unparalleled!

We encourage you to consider modest steps to get involved early whether through a nominal contribution to the PAC or educating your fellow residents on the importance of advocacy outreach. Residents are encouraged to contribute through an easy to remember Five for Five program.
