Resident American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics

Welcome to the Resident American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics (RAOAO) website. This website is designed for current and perspective osteopathic residents of orthopedic surgery. The purpose of the RAOAO website is threefold:

  • To provide a link between all the DO orthopedic residency programs and to specifically provide a forum for communication between the residents in these programs.
  • To provide links to sites that may be useful to all DO orthopedic residents.
  • To provide information to perspective DO medical students interested in residency in orthopedic surgery

What is RAOAO?

The RAOAO is a subdivision of the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics (AOAO), made up of resident members of the AOAO.  The purpose of the RAOAO is to unify osteopathic residents of orthopedic surgery through enhanced communication between residents.  The RAOAO serves as the collective “voice” of the residents to the AOAO Board of Directors meetings.  In addition, the RAOAO provides information to osteopathic medical students interested in orthopedic surgery.
