Five Americans and two Canadians completed the 2007 American, British, and Canadian (ABC) Traveling Fellowship, a journey around the world from North America to Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand and back in thirty-five days. Engaged by the generosity and the hospitality of distinguished hosts representing the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), the Australian Orthopaedic Association, and the New Zealand Orthopaedic Association, the ABC fellows exchanged insights into orthopaedic surgery, learned of the rich history and perspectives at each location, and developed international friendships.
