Course description

The online version of the AO Trauma Advanced Principles course provides participants the possibility to continue learning and training in the absence of live face-to-face events. This online course does not replace the traditional face-to-face Advanced Principles course but provides mainly the knowledge component of the curriculum. Participants are encouraged to attend the face-to-face course as a follow up event to refresh their knowledge and add the skills component to their competencies.

Course structure

This online course is delivered on 3 consecutive days from 12:00 to 16:00 CET (different modules each day consisting of presentations, small group discussions, and other activities). Participants will join online from home for 4 hours each day, and adequate break times will be integrated.

Course goal

The goal of this course is to provide participants with the knowledge component of the AO Trauma Advanced Principles course.

Target participants

The AO Trauma Course—Advanced Principles of Fracture Management is targeted at certified orthopedic and trauma surgeons who are at the threshold of becoming independent surgeons and taking over decision-making responsibility for the treatment of complex injuries. Participants must have completed the AO Trauma Course—Basic Principles of Fracture Management and must be actively involved in trauma management.
