The course is targeted at specialist orthopaedic surgeons interested in advancing their expertise in the management of foot and ankle injuries and pathological conditions. Participants must have already completed the AOTrauma Principles Course and a regional subspecialty foot course.
- foot & ankle specialists early in career
- generalists (ortho), ~ 20% of time on trauma (incl community surgeons)

- junior surgeons with primary need to learn how to do foot & ankle surgery
Surgeons participating in the course will concentrate on the application of surgical planning and advanced techniques in the management of complex foot and ankle injuries. The course will be taught in a modular format. A limited number of evidence-based lectures will cover the key information required. In practical exercises and cadaver workshops participants will be trained in the application of different techniques and approaches. Discussing cases in small groups will help participants to understand decision making and management skills. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to share their experience and cases with peers and experienced international faculty. The course will focus on a biomechanical and biological approach to apply in fracture treatment in rare conditions as well as common conditions, pitfalls, clinical tricks, and means to avoid complications. In the reconstructive part focus will be mainly on surgical techniques for managing possible pathologies posttraumatic, systemic, and neurological.
