AANA/SOMOS Traveling Mini-Fellowship

SOMOS and AANA are proud to announce the first ever SOMOS/AANA Traveling Fellowship. The inaugural year locations/faculty are Mayo Clinic Arizona with Drs. JT Tokish and Noel Pierre and Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush University with Drs. Nikhil Verma and Brian Cole. The two week SOMOS/AANA Traveling Fellowship will run from Monday, November 29th, 2021 until Sunday, December 12th, 2021. The SOMOS/AANA Traveling Fellowship committee will select two trainees per year to complete a two-week apprenticeship with a senior AANA faculty at their institution. SOMOS/AANA Traveling Fellows will be expected to provide a short report to the SOMOS members on their experience at the SOMOS Annual Meeting.

The Fellows will participate in all aspects of the clinical and surgical experience as well as complete supplementary hands-on and cadaveric training. All active duty military staff surgeons are encouraged to apply, including new residency and fellowship graduates. Funding will support travel and lodging for trainees to conduct the two week Traveling Fellowships at an arthroscopic center of excellence.

Applications are open now and will close on June 15th, 2021. Applications will include a CV and a personal statement to address how the SOMOS/AANA Traveling Fellowship will impact their military practice and future career. Fellows will be selected based on order of merit annually.
