The Orthofix Institute Orthopedic Medical Education program is the epicenter of a dynamic learning continuum for physicians and partners who wish to learn more about our extremity fixation products.
The history of the organization as well as the fundamentals of medical education is built from the principles of orthopedic researcher Giovanni de Bastiani and the philosophy to
respect the biology of the bone. Each medical education program has been engineered with these fundamentals to deliver robust, comprehensive and challenging curriculums that are relevant to the needs of the company's practicing surgeons, residents and fellows. Learning focuses on a variety of patient management solutions – both temporary and definitive - for deformity correction, reconstruction, limb lengthening and trauma.
Our goal is to provide learning opportunities tailored to meet the needs of today's medical professional with practical training designed to help improve clinician proficiency, therapy outcomes and patient care. The physician curriculum will be sequenced into a learning continuum – from resident and fellows courses to the most advanced symposia. It includes comprehensive lab sessions, extensive case review and moderator-led peer discussion – all intended to provide an extensive base of knowledge. Workshops not only focus on comprehensive orthopedic hardware but include biologic and biostimulation patient management solutions. Our programs are facilitated by leading physician faculty who combine modern academic knowledge with their relevant clinical experiences.
