Help Other FAOA Members Find You

Fewer than 6% of orthopaedic surgeons achieve AOA membership. One benefit of being an AOA member is your access to a range of orthopaedic leaders across the specialty. 

Just like your MD, DO, FACS, or FACSC, you've earned the right to use your Fellow of The American Orthopaedic Association (FAOA) credentials. Make sure to use your FAOA credentials in your bio, on your slides at conferences, and in other places that will help you connect with the select members of the AOA.
