AOCMF Fellowships

A unique opportunity for surgeons to advance your training and deepen your expertise

AOCMF Fellowship Opportunities  
"It's not just a fellowship. It's a life experience!"

Dr. Varun Menon P, Fellowship at University Hospital Basel in 2017

The AOCMF Fellowship Program provides a gateway to the worldwide AOCMF Network, offering a unique opportunity for surgeons to advance your training and deepen your expertise. The fellowship fosters cross-pollination and networking opportunities across AO’s global community with other CMF specialties. Our training is carried out under the guidance of AO experts and covers the entire scope of CMF surgical procedures performed around the world.


The AOCMF community supports between 60-65 fellowships a year to provide additional experience in AO techniques for fully trained CMF surgeons with an interest in craniomaxillofacial trauma. These fellowships are available in 4-8 weeks increments at designated hospitals worldwide.
