Fellowship and Spine Centers Task Force

The Fellowship and Spine Centers Task Force aims at improving patient care by bringing together learners, teachers and experts and providing lifelong learning pathways that are innovative and inspirational. The key objectives of the Task Force are to ensure AOSpine's education is

  1. Based on needs assessment and linked to a curriculum;
  2. Modular training programs with certification levels;
  3. Incorporating fellowships and mentorships.

The Task Force is reaching these objectives by

  1. Having created a unique Mentorship Scheme
  2. Having formed Fellows Alumni community and Fellows Alumni Steering Committee with a growing number of activities
  3. Engaging AOSpine Ambassadors and Fellows Alumni
  4. Developing metrics for establishing and maintaining spine center status
  5. Developing a sustainable and accessible fellowship and mentorship scheme
  6. Utilizing spine centers for the location of simulation and hospital-based education

    Our Task Force will create lifelong learning pathways that are innovative, inspirational and relevant to surgeons’ needs throughout their careers.  We will co-ordinate transformational change in how AOSpine delivers education, where that learning takes place and who delivers the teaching. By these actions we will create more opportunities for mentorship and peer-to-peer learning, as well as enhance our global fellowships and spine centers programmes."
