View the successful applicants for 2018 on the Becoming an AOA Trainee page.

 

The Australian Orthopaedic Registrars' Association was formed in 1984 but registrars from around Australia have met annually since 1976 for a scientific meeting, annual general meeting and Ambrose Golf Tournament. The President and CEO of the AOA are invited to attend this meeting.

The elected President of the Association is the Registrar Representative on the Federal Training Committee.

All registrars are encouraged to discuss any issues either with the AORA President or their regional training representative on the AORA National Committee (see contact details below).
