We are pleased to announce the return of the orthopaedic trauma conference. This is an interactive, one-day meeting for those wishing to pursue a career in trauma and orthopaedic surgery.
This comprehensive course will offer an overview of some of the basic aspects of diagnosis and management of orthopaedic trauma, including emergency presentations to the on-call team, with sessions on lower limb, upper limb, spine and paediatric trauma.
Sessions will be led by top consultants and senior registrars, who will offer practical advice, tips and tricks to managing an on-call orthopaedic shift. There will be plenty of opportunities for networking and the chance to ask your burning questions about careers in orthopaedics.
With interactive lectures and a fracture reduction and plastering practical skills workshop, this meeting will provide you with the knowledge and confidence necessary for orthopaedic, emergency medicine and general practice attachments. We also invite you to bring along your CVs and portfolios for the final breakout session of the day, to pose your burning questions and receive career advice directly from current Orthopaedic SpR trainees.
This meeting is ideal for Foundation (FY1/FY2) and early Core/surgical/emergency medicine trainees, student, AHPs and is also relevant for GPs wanting to refresh their knowledge and understanding of acute orthopaedic presentations.
