About Inter-Continental Travelling Fellowships
The inter-continental traveling fellowship program is a scientific and cultural exchange among orthopaedic sports medicine physicians in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America. The programme provides the fellows a valuable opportunity to exchange scientific information, stimulate research and develop collaboration and lifelong friendships.
It also provides a stimulus for leadership by recognizing young surgeons who have made a significant contribution to sports medicine. We have travelling fellowships with European Society of Sports Traumatology Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA), American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and Latin American Society of Knee Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine (SLARD).
For each travelling fellowship, THREE fellows are selected to visit overseas sports medicine institutes and facilities for 3-4 weeks, and are accompanied by a reputed senior orthopaedic sports medicine specialist as the “Godparent”. There is a rich history of traveling fellowships and this prestigious program will continue to be a highlight of APKASS.
We truly appreciate the generous support from enovis and Smith & Nephew for theTravelling Fellowship Programmes.
