HSS Stavros Niarchos Foundation Academic Visitor Program

The HSS Stavros Niarchos Foundation Academic Visitor Program is designed for orthopaedic surgeons from Greece to observe surgical and clinical care, be exposed to best practices in orthopaedic surgery and experience the culture of excellence at HSS.

Participants will observe patient care and complex surgeries in state-of-the-art operating rooms; they will also participate in Grand Rounds, professional education programs, a visiting professional lecture series, and journal clubs, as available.

Two participants are selected for the spring session (April 1–May 31), and two participants are selected for the fall session (October 2–December 2).

HSS covers the cost of airfare and lodging for selected HSS Stavros Niarchos Foundation Academic Visitor Program participants. Visitors are responsible for procuring their own visa.
