Bone School - An Orthopaedic Resident Teaching Programme
Bone School is an educational initiative aimed at providing a comprehensive learning experience for orthopaedic trainees and young orthopaedic surgeons.
The objective of the programme is:
To provide a comprehensive learning experience that includes lectures, case presentations and motor skills enhancement workshops – including Basic Surgical Skills Courses and Advanced Orthopaedic Skills Courses.
To enable orthopaedic post-graduate trainees to interact with and learn from Senior Teachers from various medical colleges and DNB institutions.
To provide a forum for orthopaedic trainees of various institutions to meet and learn from each other.
Bone School will be conducted on the second Sunday of every month and chaired by senior orthopaedic teachers with each monthly session focusing on a separate region (hip, spine etc) and sub-specialty In addition to didactic lectures and case presentations, we also propose to conduct motor skills enhancement workshops in the form of Basic and Advanced Orthopaedic Skills Courses and cadaver dissection courses. Bone School is not a pre-exam crash course, but is aimed at enhancing the knowledge and motor skill levels of orthopaedic trainees to enable them to provide safe, evidence-based, high quality operative and non-operative care to their patients.
The programme is designed to maximise the level of interaction between the faculty and the trainees and will reflect the suggestions and feedback from the attendees. Please do not hesitate to contact the course coordinator via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any suggestions regarding Bone School.
