Orthopaedic & Trauma Update

The idea behind this annual event is to have an educational week in a healthy environment, to meet and exchange views with some of your old and new colleagues and to get fit on the slopes. You can then return to work full of energy, ready to implement the knowledge that you acquired on the course.

This meeting will be approved for a minimum of 15 CME points.

The Update

The provisional outline of topics to be addressed at this meeting can be found on the Programme page. The scientific sessions, including workshops will take place at this Henri Oreiller Congress Centre, situated within a few minutes walk from the hotels and surrounding apartments.

Apart from invited faculty we welcome contributions from delegates to the main Scientific Programme and also to run a workshop on a specific topic. We need your abstracts by November 22nd,  2019 via on-line abstract from this page. Emphasis is on update and new developments in a given field of trauma and orthopaedics. Orthopaedic surgeons in training presenting papers are eligible for prizes.
