For Core T&O trainees and early years T&O registrars



An introductory basic science course aimed specifically at early years trainees.

This course is aimed at early years orthopaedic trainees and is designed to introduce the key basic science concepts to trainees at the outset of their training. It has been designed to lay the vital foundations of orthopaedic basic sciences to junior trainees. It is not a revision course for the FRCS (Orth) exam). The course will run over two days and will be in the format of lectures and small group discussions by an invited faculty of world experts in the field of orthopaedic basic science.
