International Orthopaedic & Trauma Symposium

The 3rd annual International Orthopaedic & Trauma Symposium at the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG) took place on Friday 21 April 2017.

The Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery funded a group of Orthopaedic Surgeons studying the Master of Orthopaedic Surgery (MCh Orth) degree at the TORT Centre to attend the symposium as part of their studies.

This is a one day symposium designed to focus on a varied range of relevant topics tailored towards consultant surgeons with an interest in orthopaedics and trauma, surgical trainees, nurse specialists and allied health professionals. There were four sessions during the day, each with several international key speakers providing the latest thinking and advances in current practice to optimise surgical outcomes in orthopaedics and trauma.

Professor Rami Abboud, MCh (Orth) Course Director, said:

We like to have as varied a syllabus for our MCh (Orth) candidates as we possibly can and allowing them to experience an international orthopaedic conference and hear eminent key speakers from the world of orthopaedics seemed an ideal way to take their minds temporarily off their imminent dissertation submissions and forthcoming exams. I would like to thank Mrs Sheila MacDonald (MCh Orth Course Administrator) for liaising with RCPSG to organise for our students to attend and the College for their discounted educational fees”.
