CFBS Travelling Fellowship


Originally known as the “French Fellowship”, the CFBS Fellowship was inaugurated in 1972 by Drs. J.P. Moreau and Tony Trias. The original intent of this Fellowship was to generate interest in the orthopaedic specialty among the younger French speaking orthopaedic surgeons.

Canadian candidates are selected by the COA’s Exchange Fellowships Committee for the tour.
