the AOA's flagship tours. The NATF promotes significant clinical
and scientific exchange and fellowship. The tour is an intense

runs approximately five weeks in the fall of odd-numbered years and
travels to regional orthopaedic centers in the US and Canada,
rotating the region to be visited.

- approved orthopaedic training (including residency and
fellowships) on or after June 30, 2011
- approved orthopaedic training on or after the June 30,
2010, if they subsequently entered into military service
2015 tour applicants must be able to take the tour
in the Fall of 2015. Exact dates will be determined. Selected
