Event description

Multi-speciality collaboration is vital in providing the best medical care in today’s health system. Plastic & Orthopaedic Surgery commonly work hand-in-hand to optimise complex cases involving major trauma, open fractures and are both allied in hand surgery.

These specialities are often overlooked and undertaught in the medical school curriculum despite them being large field of medicine, impacting patients from all age ranges. Therefore, we aim to provide a useful learning resource to help students get people passionate about these fields of medicine.

This unique event explores the use of plate fixation, external fixation, tendon repair and flap design through interactive consultant lead workshops using small group-based teaching. Delegates will be provided with a handbook covering the information explored throughout the day.

Audience
Medical student and foundation year doctors
