Quick access
The course is based upon a philosophy that good fracture management requires more than the practical skills required to ‘fix’ a fracture. The competent fracture surgeon should understand bone physiology, response to injury and the processes of repair. Good decision-making is the key to fracture management and interaction between participants and a large faculty during lectures, group discussion and practical sessions will help you develop these skills. Practical sessions involve the fixation of common diaphyseal and articular fractures on real size artificial bone models, using AO TK approved instruments and implants.

Much of the course content can be aligned to the trauma and orthopaedic component of the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme. Participants will have the opportunity, on request, of completing relevant workplace based assessments.

This course is aimed at junior trainees. ATLS training is recommended before attending the course.

The AO Foundation is a non-profit organisation, and dedicated to the advancement of the care of those suffering from musculoskeletal injury and disease.
