 Extremity Fixation

 

​​​​​​The Orthofix Extremity Fixation Medical Education program is 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, relevant to the needs of the practicing surgeons, residents and fellows. Learning focuses on a variety of patient management solutions – both temporary and definitive - for trauma, deformity correction and limb lengthening, both in adult and paediatric patients.  

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 masterclasses. It includes comprehensive lab sessions, extensive case review and moderator-led peer discussion – all intended to provide an extensive base of knowledge. Our programs are facilitated by leading physician faculty who combine modern academic knowledge with their relevant clinical experiences. 


 

Orthopedic courses are diverse and may feature:

  • Didactic Lectures
  • Hands-on Sawbone Workshops
  • Hands-on Cadaveric Workshops
  • Interactive Case Study Presentations and Discussions
  • Roundtable Clinical and Business Discussions
  • Hospital Based Observations

 Learning Continuum

​Our courses are designed to address different levels of competency-based learning:

 

This progression learning pathway consists of three levels of courses, each with well-defined learning objectives and selection criteria for delegates.

It is critical for the successful implementation of this education strategy that delegates attend the appropriate level of course. This facilitates a cohesive standard during the meeting, enables discussions to be held at the right level and, most importantly, achieve better learning outcome measures.​​
