Short Term International Fellowships

The AOTrauma Fellowship provides young orthopedic trauma surgeons with the opportunity to experience trauma care, delivered by AOTrauma faculty members in an AOTrauma-certified host center. The purpose is to familiarize fellows with the indications, planning, techniques, and pitfalls of osteosynthesis, as judged by AO faculty.

AOTrauma Fellowships are not courses, and they do not follow a curriculum. The knowledge acquired during an AOTrauma fellowship depends to a high degree on the initiative of the individual fellow. Hence, the main requirement for a successful fellowship is for the applicant to be highly motivated.
