Our Post-Graduate Sub-specialty Fellowship programmes have an impressive national and international reputation for the quality of training. AIMS has sponsored and promoted the specialist training of hundreds of young surgeons from around the world whose Alumni now includes many prominent orthopaedic surgeons. AIMS coordinates and organises meetings and educational courses for the benefit of its members and builds lifelong relationships with its Alumni.


Our programme started formally in 1985 with Dr Roger Paterson MBBS, FRACS, FAOA and Dr Charles P Capito MD being the first official orthopaedic Fellows followed by Dr David Wood who currently serves on the Board of AIMS and Dr David Schmidt MD from Texas.
