Welcome Note


Dear colleagues,

Dear junior surgeons,


It is a common secret that the most challenging time of our career is the beginning of our training. It is the time that "the caterpillar turns to butterfly"; it is the time that the student becomes a surgeon.

So it is essential, this first meeting with the operating theatre be as smooth as possible. This project aims to provide the junior orthopaedic surgeon with all the essential provisions before getting involved with the "real" patient.
That is why the project refers strictly to the first and second year trainees and not to seniors.

The most common injuries - fractures are going to be analysed and presented by senior Orthopaedic Surgeons. Then the most accepted surgical treatment is going to be live presented on cadavers.
The junior surgeon will have the opportunity to spend plenty of time with the significant orthopaedic instruments - materials, get hints and tips from the instructors and finally spend time with the cadaver in "real" time theatre conditions.

Hoping this experience be unique for everyone.

hope your road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery..."
