Do I need to move to Columbia, SC to join the AAMT Fellowship?
No, you can complete the AAMT Fellowship from your home clinic. There are 3 primary requirements for completing training in the clinic in which you presently work:
- The clinic must not be a physician owned or referral for profit clinic
- The clinic must see a “representative” population of all orthopaedic conditions
- The clinic must have a FAAOMPT mentor working at the clinic or a FAAOMPT mentor that is accessible to the clinic (i.e. the FAAOMPT mentor may come to the fellow-in-training’s clinic to provide 1:1 mentorship, or the fellow-in training may travel to the mentor’s clinic to fulfill the requirement)
