As leaders in orthopedic education, our physicians recently had the pleasure of hosting the American-British-Canadian (ABC) Traveling Fellows. The fellows came from countries all around the world, including the United Kingdom, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.  

The fellows listened to lectures by our physicians, were given a tour of the Washington University School of Medicine campus, and even took in a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game during their visit.

The ABC Traveling Fellowship began in 1948, and was developed by Dr. Robert I. Harris of Toronto, Canada, who was the current president of the American Orthopaedic Association (AOA). The first ABC Traveling Fellowship consisted of thirteen orthopaedic surgeons from Great Britain, who visited orthopaedic centers in North America in a time of post-World War II difficulties.
