Goal of the event
The AOTrauma Advanced Principles course builds upon
the AO Principles and techniques learned in the
AOTrauma Basic Principles course and focuses on the
principles and techniques of operative fracture
management in more complex injuries.
The AOTrauma Course—Advanced Principles of Fracture
Management is targeted at surgeons at the threshold of
becoming independent surgeons and taking over
decision-making responsibility for the treatment of
complex injuries. Participants must have already
completed the AOTrauma Course—Basic Principles of
Fracture Management and must be actively involved in
Online pre-course self-assessment prepares participants
for the course and allows the faculty to tailor the course
to the needs of the participants. Before attending the
course, participants are expected to complete an online
module on fracture reduction.
The course will be taught in a modular format. Each
module consists of several evidence-based lectures,
which will cover the key information required. In
practical exercises participants will be trained in the
application of various techniques. Discussing cases in
small groups will help participants to understand
decision-making and management skills.
After the course an online post-course self-assessment
will provide participants an opportunity to review the
important topics from the course.
