Orthopaedic surgery is unique amongst the surgical disciplines in that it requires not only an understanding of anatomy and clinical sciences, and accruement of surgical skills, but also a sound foundation in biomechanics.Although the former domains are extensively covered during undergraduate and postgraduate medical training, musculoskeletal biomechanics has traditionally been less well covered in the core training.
'Basic biomechanics in Orthopaedics' is a one day course that helps fill in this gap. This course covers the fundamental biomechaincal principles that must be considered in making Orthopaedic decisions. It also introduces participants to the basic engineering concepts behind common Orthopaedic implants. This understanding will help to make the clinical practice in Orthopaedics more rewarding, and stimulate further enthusiasm for the speciality.
The course is delivered through a combination of interactive lectures, small group exercises and discussions, and practicals and demonstrations.
The course fee includes FREE textbook, lunch, beverages and a certificate.
