16th & 17th July 2018 • Hilton Sheffield Hotel, Victoria Quays, Sheffield
Convened by Chris Blundell & Mark Davies of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, this two day meeting is specifically aimed at ST3 – ST6 Orthopaedic Registrars. The 2018 meeting will cover all aspects of Lower Limb surgery.
The Summer University orthopaedic trauma courses were started 17 years ago as an industry-sponsored initiative to educate trainee orthopaedic surgeons with the principles of trauma surgery. Although it is not an exam preparation course, it is designed to teach elements of the core curriculum to the standard expected to be granted CCT.
This course will feature didactic lectures, clinical case presentations and practical workshops to cover the following areas of lower limb trauma surgery:
Workshop discussion groups
These small group workshops are designed to promote discussion and give delegates an opportunity to ask questions from the expert faculty. They’ve been a popular component of the course in the past so remain an essential part of the program. A key element here will be clinical case discussion. Delegates are encouraged to bring their own cases to the meeting for discussion with faculty and other delegates.
Discussion and debate is a key part of any meeting, that’s why there will be an opportunity for delegates and faculty to network over an informal dinner on Monday evening (included in the fee).
The subsidised fee includes accommodation on Monday evening and a course dinner.
Please note as the course is specifically aimed at ST level, anyone applying whose educational level is outside of these categories are welcome to register, but will be placed on a waiting list and informed after 15th May if there are places available.
