The AOA’s APEX Leadership Program:
Premium education for the orthopaedic leader
Sharpen tools, deepen skills, achieve pinnacle performance.

AOA is proud to announce a new partnership with the University of Southern California (USC) — a leadership education offering for orthopaedic leaders: AOA | USC APEX Leadership Certificate Program.

APEX is a ten-month “deep dive” leadership development program designed for the specific needs of orthopaedic surgeon leaders. Following in the tradition of the AOA-Kellogg Leadership Series and AOA Leadership Immersion Series with University of Chicago, Booth School of Business, the APEX Leadership Certificate Program will cover personal leadership, strategic analysis, organizational culture, effective negotiations, and leadership for high-performing teams. 

Using a cohort learning model, participants work in a collegial environment with professional networking opportunities to build strong bonds for years to come. When it is over, you will be proud to have been a part of this prestigious experience. Space is limited. Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in this valuable and prestigious experience.

Participants will work on their own personal capstone project in which they will apply the lessons and skills learned to provide solutions within their own institution or department. 

Registration for the course is now full. To be added to the waitlist, please contact Gwendolyn Glasner at glasner@aoassn.org.
