This year AAHKS established the Fellowship Education Improvement and Innovation Grant Program, which, in cooperation with our Founding Industry Partner Zimmer Biomet, granted more than $1.1 million to 59 total joint arthroplasty fellowship programs. The program was developed to facilitate long-term goals of standardizing curriculums and improving training in targeted areas of improvement, including patient optimization, high-risk/at-risk patients, diverse patient populations, site of care impact, registry-based research and advanced technologies in joint arthroplasty. AAHKS President Bryan D. Springer, MD and FOCAL Chair William G. Hamilton, MD discussed the program, and how it will benefit adult reconstruction fellows, with Zimmer Biomet Chief Science, Technology and Innovation Officer Nitin Goyal, MD, prior to the disbursement of funds. Listen here, or wherever you listen.
