The NOFA International Traveling Fellowship has been formalized between renowned foot and ankle centers in China, Italy, Germany, India and the UK. This provides our senior residents a unique opportunity to spend time with international leaders in the fields of foot and ankle surgery and research. The NOFA Foundation in partnership with area hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio also accepts international foot and ankle surgeons for variable lengths of time. More information may be obtained by contacting Dr. Mark Hardy at info@nofafoundation.org.
