Visit the Expert fellowship

Are you proficient in your special field of interest and desire to further improve your approach and technique through learning from a specific AO Trauma master surgeon?
“By completing an AO Trauma fellowship you become part of the AO Trauma community, a worldwide network of orthopedic trauma surgeons.”

Samir Mehta (US)

AOTrauma Visit the Expert fellowships are for surgeons who are proficient in their special field of interest and would like to gain additional expertise by working closely with a particular expert for a short period of time. These AO Trauma fellowships are designed to be with a master surgeon of the fellow’s choice. 

They do not have to be at an approved AO Trauma fellowship host center. However, the expert to be visited must be an AO faculty. The fellow is expected to contact the host before applying.

Visit the Expert fellowships have a duration of two to four weeks. Fellows receive a regular stipend, but all arrangements have to be made by the fellow.
