An exchange Travelling Fellowship between the British and American Hip Societies was proposed by David Hamblen in 2000. A meeting set up by the Hon Sec and John Callaghan (Iowa) with Charles Engh and Dick Brand of the AHS secured agreement with the American Hip society at the AAOS in Dallas. Two young UK surgeons (SpR's or Consultants within 5 years of appointment) would visit centres of Orthopaedic excellence in the USA for three weeks in the early autumn of 2003 and then bi-annually. Two North American surgeons of similar status would visit the UK in 2004 and then bi-annually.
The application process for the 2019 Rothman-Ranawat Travelling Fellowship is now open.
The traveling Fellows will visit up to twelve (12) host sites in North America within a period of approximately four (4) weeks, starting on Saturday, March 16, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (at the AAOS 2019 Annual Meeting and Specialty Day). These visits will include personal interactions with some of the world's most prominent specialists in adult joint reconstruction, scientific conferences, surgical observations, and much more.
The goal of the Fellowship is to foster emerging thought-leaders and to provide them with an inspirational tour of state-of-the-art facilities offering exemplary surgical care of the hip joint throughout North America.
