AO CMF North America fellows portal
On behalf of the AO CMF North America (AO CMF NA) Fellowship Committee, we welcome you as an AO CMF NA fellow for the 2022-23 academic year. My name is David Powers and I am the AO CMF North America Board Director responsible for oversight of the AO CMF Fellowship Program.
If you aren’t already aware, your current institution has been recognized as an AO CMF NA fellowship site. There are currently only 17 approved fellowship sites within the US and Canada as it is a highly competitive process and therefore a prestigious honor to be recognized as an AO CMF NA site.
As an AO CMF NA Fellow, you will receive many opportunities and benefits to help you through your fellowship year.
AO CMF NA Advanced Courses
As part of your AO CMF NA Fellowship, you are required to take one AO CMF NA Advanced Course. These should be funded independent of AO CMF NA or with the funds that your institution receives as part of the fellowship award. Here are two Advanced Cadaveric Training Educational Activities to consider.
Computer Assisted Maxillofacial Surgery
11-13 November 2022 – Tampa, FL
Maxillofacial Reconstruction: A Focus on Ballistic Injury Management
6-8 January 2023 – Rosemont, IL
