Saturday 6th of November (Orthopaedics), 20th of November (Plastic Surgery) from 10 am - 2 pm (UTC +1)


This course is aimed at junior doctors who want to improve their understanding and ability to manage commonly encountered orthopaedic and plastic surgery presentations.

Appropriate for those with an interest in pursuing a career in orthopaedics and plastic surgery as well as those with upcoming orthopaedic and plastic surgery jobs, regardless of career goals.


A one day focused course aimed at improving theoretical knowledge and surviving an orthopaedic and plastic surgery on-call shift.
Teaching will consist of a series of short lectures focusing on presentations commonly encountered by junior doctors with an emphasis on the areas they most often find challenging.


The course aims to improve theoretical knowledge to allow junior doctors to more confidently and appropriately manage pre and post-op surgical patients which can be a very daunting task, particularly on the many occasions they find their registrar and consultant in theatre!
