|The American Academy of Foot and Ankle Osteosynthesis is a new educational organization for internal fixation. We are please to announce that we have formed an educational relationship with Smith and Nephew that will enable us to pursue our mission of teaching our profession in the field of internal fixation. We will be offering four courses in 2014, both comprehensive and advanced courses running concurrently on two different dates at the state-of-the-art facility of Smith and Nephew:|

We had a great first run for our inaugural meeting in April. Now that we have gone through the schedule at the new facility we have been able to streamline the lectures and lab time. This has allowed us to shorten the course from four days to three. The courses will now run from Thursday through Saturday. We are working now to get an updated schedule for both the Comprehensive and Advanced courses posted on our website.
