Fellowship Education Coalition (FEC)


Transition to Practice Lecture Series 

Developed by the Fellowship Education Coalition, comprised of the following orthopaedic organizations: AOA/CORD, AAHKS, AANA, AAOS, ABOS, ACGME, AOFAS, AOSSM, ASES, ASSH, NASS, OTA and POSNA, each module has been designed by workgroups consisting of current fellows, fellowship directors and faculty, representing all subspecialties. These modules are educational tools that can be downloaded for use by fellowship and program directors in conferences with their faculty, fellows and/or senior residents. Included are PowerPoint presentations, a pdf copy of the presentation, hyperlinks to a variety of other available educational resources and tools, and an accompanying white paper. It takes just a few seconds to download the materials. The modules are designed for a 45- to 60-minute interactive conference.

Four Transition to Practice modules are available:

  • Choosing a Practice
