WELCOME TO THE 32nd EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA SYMPOSIUM

With Smith & Nephew being the main sponsor, as usual, there is a five-day Instructional Course, aimed at trainees and those requiring an over-view and update in orthopaedic trauma, running in parallel with a three-day Trauma Symposium, aimed at established surgeons interested in recent developments, debates, and controversies. Highlights of these courses include:

• An experienced and enthusiastic faculty of international and national experts
• Short, focussed lectures followed by wide-ranging discussions based around carefully selected clinical cases, all located in Edinburgh’s Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa.
• Breakout sessions which encompass ‘meet the expert’ discussions and dry-bone practical labs.
• Cadaveric surgical labs at the University of Edinburgh’s historic Anatomy Department. 
• Expanded breakout and cadaveric sessions focussed on combined ortho-plastic teamwork and reconstruction.


THE EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL INSTRUCTIONAL TRAUMA COURSE
15 - 17 August 2018

This popular course provides education in orthopaedic trauma for surgeons in training, senior orthopaedic nurses and senior physiotherapists. It is also useful for experienced orthopaedic surgeons who wish to update their knowledge of orthopaedic trauma. The level of the course is particularly useful for surgeons preparing for their orthopaedic fellowship examinations. During the five day course all aspects of orthopaedic trauma will be covered by an experienced faculty of international and national experts. The format comprises lectures, small group discussions and hands-on labs.


THE EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA SYMPOSIUM
15 - 17 August 2018

This well-established annual meeting updates senior orthopaedic surgeons in new trauma philosophies and techniques. This year’s subject areas include fractures around the ankle, humerus, proximal femur and tibia; sessions on orthopaedic trials and research, and spinal injuries for the non-spinal surgeon. The successful format of small group discussions, demonstrations and hands-on sessions will be maintained and delegates will be able to discuss a range of related topics with a faculty of international and national experts. The meeting will be particularly useful for consultants approaching revalidation in orthopaedic trauma.
