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.

Target participants

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 trauma management.

Course description

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.
