The live stream version of this international Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery conference will feature the first half of the programme consisting of 10-minute academic lectures in the morning covering four main sections: Orthopaedic subspecialties and what they involve, diversity in orthopaedics, career options in orthopaedics and application pathways, including CV tips.

The in-person version will feature the morning talks, 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, as well as cutting-edge practical workshops in the afternoon, focused on the latest updates on orthopaedic training aimed at junior doctors and medical students

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. Please note that the afternoon workshops will not be available to watch in this live stream version.
