The popular annual RSM Orthopaedic Trauma Symposium is back in a face-to-face format. The well-established symposium provides a comprehensive update on evidence-based management and operative techniques in orthopaedic trauma for practising surgeons as well as a concurrent basic science primer for surgeons in training. 

We hope you will join us in person for this event but if you are unable you can sign up for the on-demand version here.

Our successful interactive format includes short lectures, case-based discussions and surgical masterclasses. The distinguished faculty will share their evidence-based knowledge and expertise on a wide variety of clinically relevant topics. The meeting utilises short lectures, clinical case-based discussions and demonstrative surgical masterclasses over a 3-day programme.

Also, get 30% OFF if you book for two days or 40% OFF if you book for three days. Discount will be automatically applied in the cart after you have made your selection.

Participants can expect to:

  • Be updated on evidence-based treatment of common fractures and know the latest prospective clinical trials
  • Understand the latest principles in fracture healing and gain knowledge of effective therapies for non-union
  • Revisit surgical techniques in shoulder, elbow, forearm and wrist injuries
  • Evaluate and apply new concepts for ortho-plastic management of open tibial fractures
  • Understand recent advances in the multi-disciplinary management of elderly proximal femoral fracture care
  • Gain a thorough understanding of the assessment & treatment of spinal trauma for the non-spinal surgeon
  • Explore concepts of safe trauma treatment in a post-Covid environment

Can’t attend in person on the day? This event is available to watch on-demand for up to 60 days. Please register for the pre-recorded webinar here. The link to watch the webinar will be sent via email three days after the live in-person event on 27 May 2022 so that you can view it on-demand.
