Goal of the course
This course aims to maximize patient outcomes following fractures around the hip, by improving the practicing surgeon's ability to recognize, classify, plan, and deal with these injuries in different settings.
The course is designed for experienced, senior orthopedic surgeons and fracture specialists with at least five years experience in treating proximal femoral fractures. Participants need to be willing to share their experiences with and learn from their colleagues and the faculty facilitators.
Participants should have completed the AO Trauma Courses—Basic Principles and Advanced Principles of Fracture Management and must be able to communicate well in English.
