Abstract: The Austrian-Swiss-German (ASG) Traveling Fellowship, started in 1979, is a unique opportunity for surgeons from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom to travel for an extended period to premier orthopaedic surgery sites throughout Austria, Switzerland, and Germany every other year. In turn, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom host representatives from Austria, Switzerland, and Germany in the intervening years. In 2014, three of us were chosen to participate: Dr. Ahmad Nassr from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and Dr. James Slover from NYU Langone Medical Center in New York, NY, both sponsored by the American Orthopaedic Association; and Dr. Phillip Heaton from Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, England, sponsored by the British Orthopaedic Association.
