Guest Society Program

International Programs
AAHKS is committed to increasing the presence of international societies, their scientific research, and their members at our Annual Meeting to ensure we bring international perspectives and expertise to our members.

We look forward to Guest Societies joining our Annual Meeting program each year to expand the reach of arthroplasty research and international exchange to benefit all organizations involved. AAHKS invites fellows from each Guest Society for a three to four-week traveling fellowship to two institutions – bookending the AAHKS Annual Meeting.
