Program areas at AAHKS

Annual meeting - the Association conducts an accredited medical education conference attended by over 3000 Surgeons and industry professionals. Original research, surgical techniques and health policy topics are presented. Travel and lodging are provided to 140 medical residents interested in arthroplasty so they can attend a free course designed for them. A grant of $10,000 to cover living expenses is provided to two international Surgeons and travelling fellowships are arranged for them at medical academic institutions. The proceedings of the conference are published in one of the Association's official publications, journal of arthroplasty. Additional accredited continuing medical education activities were conducted in new york city and online.

Research - the Association produces two peer-reviewed medical journals, the journal of arthroplasty and arthroplasty today. These journals convey the results of research that can alter and improve the practice of total joint arthroplasty. The Association's research committee also conducted the evaluation of grant applications submitted for funding to the related foundation for arthroplasty research and education.

Health policy activities - federal policy makers in congress and the executive departments and agencies were provided information and analysis about total joint arthroplasty over the course of the year. This assists the government in making better decisions on healthcare related matters that affect millions of patients. The Association also organizes and supports a health policy fellows program that allowed several surgeon-members to attend various events in Washington dc and elsewhere related to health policy and to interact with high-level federal officials and legislators. The health policy fellowship allows the participants to become more effective at understanding and assisting the process by which policy becomes law and regulation.
