POSNA sponsors an annual traveling fellowship in conjunction with other international pediatric orthopedic alliance societies (EPOS, SLAOTI, and APPOS). Each year 3 POSNA members will travel abroad and 3 members of an alliance society will tour in North America. Participants visit and learn new techniques and exchange ideas while deepening POSNA's international connection.
