The American Orthopaedic Association: a Community of
The American Orthopaedic Association has long been recognized as
a Community of Leaders within orthopaedics.
Since its inception, the AOA has been an outwardly focused,
mission-based organization committed to furthering the art and
science of orthopaedics. The AOA has continued this tradition of
outward, big-picture thinking.
At the core of the AOA you will find individuals who share areas
of interest that together guide the specialty.
The AOA focuses on leadership issues through its elected
members. AOA members work to expand an already prestigious list of
contributions that benefit the entire orthopaedic community.
The AOA also looks inward, challenging each member of the
community to make individual contributions to assist the
organization in delivering on its mission.
