The AAOS has more than 70 committees that report under its current Governance structure. The majority of committees report to one of the AAOS Councils or Cabinet with several committees reporting directly to the AAOS Board of Directors.
Each AAOS Council/Cabinet has been created by the Board of Directors, and its existence is not time-limited. The function of an AAOS Council/Cabinet is to plan, organize, direct, and evaluate an entire category of AAOS programs, products, and services. A Cabinet differs from a Council in that it serves the entire AAOS structure.
There are three AAOS Councils and one Cabinet:
Council on Advocacy
Wilford K. Gibson, MD, FAAOS - Chair
Council on Education
Paul Tornetta, III, MD, FAAOS - Chair
Council on Research and Quality
Robert H. Quinn, MD, FAAOS – Chair
Jennifer M. Weiss, MD, FAAOS – Chair
