Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and individual state quarentine guidelines, IFAF has moved several of our meetings to an online platform. Check each individual meeting to see whether it is being offered in-person or virtually. All meetings will be held live and on the Pacific Time Zone (No recorded sessions). We are continuing to monitor the situation and will notify any registrants personally if changes are made. We will also add updates as they become necessary, so check back often. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this uncertain time.

The International Foot & Ankle Foundation for Education and Research (IFAF) has continually grown, changed and expanded. The IFAF now supports 12 residents in the NW Podiatric Surgical Residency Consortium; offers more high-quality local, regional and international educational programs; provides an online scientific journal at FAOJ.org; and helps support the Yucatan Crippled Children Project twice a year.
