The ACFAS learning
pathways are a tool to be used by residency directors, fellowship directors and
school faculty to aid with didactic learning during the COVID-19 crisis. They
are not intended to replace a curriculum, but to supplement student and
resident education during this time of need. The learning
pathways are divided into basic, intermediate, and advanced categories. Pathways have been
organized into specific topics that have a variety of educational materials
from the ACFAS On Demand course content. They also include journal articles
with links primarily from The Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery (JFAS).
