AO Trauma Masters Course: AO Alliance reaches out to its surgeon community
13 August 2020
The AO Alliance is offering to qualifying surgeons the opportunity to attend one of the outstanding AO Trauma Masters courses from September 7-9, 2020.
Trauma and orthopedic surgeons in LMICs are facing unprecedented and challenging conditions with the COVID-19 pandemic. This worldwide concern has brought AO Alliance’s face-to-face educational activities to a standstill. Many organizations with more developed means have been able to offer online education that is pertinent to the AO Alliance network. While there is a lot available on the web, quality is not always assured.
Therefore, the AO Alliance has launched a three-tier strategy to advance its mission to improve the care of the injured, and to further develop its main assets: the AO Alliance healthcare worker community and its network of faculty.
To qualify for the course, the following criteria must be met:
- Trauma and orthopedic surgeons with at least 2 years of experience who want to update their expertise, and want to manage complications and more complex cases.
- Participants should have completed either the AO Alliance or the AO Trauma Advanced Principles of Fracture Management course and must be able to communicate well in English.
- These online courses will be delivered on three consecutive days from 12:00 to 16:00 CET (different modules each day consisting of presentations, small group discussions, and other activities). Participants should be able to join online for 4 hours each day with a reliable Internet connection.
The AO Alliance will cover the registration fees for one of the following courses:
- Shoulder Trauma
- Fractures around the Elbow
- Foot and Ankle Fractures
