In the morning, talks will consist of short 10-minute presentations covering four main sections: Orthopaedic subspecialties and what they involve, diversity in orthopaedicscareer options in orthopaedics and application pathways, including CV tips. The talks will be followed by lunch, during which attendees will present their research works via poster, and a panel of experts will review and critically appraise each project.

The afternoon will consist of a circuit of small group practical workshops focusing on the core skills required as an orthopaedic surgeon: Intramedullary nailingdynamic Hip Screwopen-reduction internal fixation and external fixation. These workshops will be run by current orthopaedic trainees providing a unique opportunity for attendees to get hands-on experience and guidance on different surgical techniques.
