The OTA celebrates the creation of the Roy Sanders OTA Traveling Fellowship. Sincere gratitude is extended to Roy Sanders, MD, for his ongoing leadership and generous endowment of a program which will enrich the lives of selected fellows and shape the next generation of OTA leaders.
The Roy Sanders OTA Traveling Fellowship is an immersive leadership experience for early to mid-career orthopaedic trauma surgeons designed to broaden understanding and improve networking for the fellows, including a deeper professional connection via an OTA appointed senior mentor.
Knowledge acquisition by discussion with various centers about clinical strategies, local trauma care variations, and an educational highlight with podium presentation at the OTA Annual Meeting further distinguishes the experience.
After completion of the fellowship, OTA will appoint a committee position for each fellow in hopes to enrich the lives of the traveling fellows and build future leaders within our organization.
Traveling Fellowship Winner Announcement:
The Orthopaedic Trauma Association’s Traveling Fellowship program has officially launched! There was a very strong group of applicants interviewed at the OTA Annual Meeting in Denver, and the committee unanimously selected our three inaugural OTA Traveling Fellows: Brandon Yuan, MD, Milton Little, MD, and Emily Wagstrom, MD.
Host sites have been selected and the fellows will begin their travel year in 2022.
Many thanks to Roy Sanders for endowing the traveling fellowship program and also mentoring the first group of Traveling Fellowship participants. We look forward to working with these fellows and continue to encourage young OTA members to be involved as future leaders in our society.
