The John J. Fahey, MD, Memorial North American Traveling Fellowship (NATF) originated in 1968 at an American Orthopaedic Association (AOA) Executive Committee meeting. In 1969, the committee's proposal to create a fellowship program for orthopaedic surgeons to travel to orthopaedic centers around the United States and Canada was accepted. The tour's purpose is to promote clinical and scientific exchange and fellowship at each orthopaedic program visited. The 2007 tour was organized by Sohail Mirza, MD (University of Washington), and was coordinated by Lesley Coussis of the AOA office and Trinity Wittman of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association.
