ISAKOS Fellowships and Scholarships
The ISAKOS Global Travelling Fellowship is a new initiative from ISAKOS to
foster the international exchange of knowledge and skills in the field of
sports orthopaedic surgery. Fellows will have the opportunity to observe
sports orthopaedic surgeries performed by highly respected surgeons, to
discuss not only the surgical procedures but all aspects of patient
management, and to discuss and share research experience.
Sponsored by the Patellofemoral Foundation, Inc.
The Patellofemoral Traveling Fellowship was established in 2005 by the Patellofemoral Foundation and ISAKOS to promote better understanding and communication around the world regarding Patellofemoral pain. The Patellofemoral Traveling Fellowship is available on a competitive basis to an orthopaedic surgeon interested in the study and advancement of understanding of the Patellofemoral joint.
ISAKOS is pleased to offer the opportunity for three international sports
medicine fellows to attend the International Sports Medicine Fellows Conference.
This annual course is held every January in Carlsbad, California. This
scholarship is intended to promote better understanding and communication
regarding injuries or conditions as related to sports medicine.

countries, foster international collaboration, and promote academic excellence
in arthroscopy, knee surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine.
