2022 Virtual International Residents’ Course



About the course

The first international resident course is divided into six small discussion groups of approximately 15 resident and two expert faculty surgeons per module. The topics of the modules include diaphyseal, articular, Foot and ankle, pediatrics, geriatrics and pelvis and acetabulum. On each discussion group challenging cases will be presented and participants will have the opportunity to actively discussed the basic principles of fracture management with the guidance of an expert international faculty. Evidence-based lectures covering key information and including selected videos and power point presentations from international faculty are going to be released previous to the course in order to prepare the participants for the case discussions. These lecture can be accessed during a period of four weeks previous to the course and are an essential part of the pre course study guide.


PGY 1-4’s are encouraged to attend, as well as others who may benefit. 


$10 USD


Please be aware that we are limiting the registration to 120 total people, 30 people per each country. Registration will close once course reaches maximum capacity. To register, please email Kaiser@ota.org.
