MacOrtho Residents and Faculty attend the 5th Annual Orthopaedic Resident Review in Reconstructive Surgery course January 21 – 23, 2016.
As follow up to the one-day Orthopaedic Resident Review in Paeditrics, MacOrtho’s residents, Marcin Kowalczuk, James Nuttall and Matthew MacLeod continued on to the Orthopaedic Resident Review in Reconstructive Surgery course hosted by Canada Medical Education. www.cmecourses.ca.
To recap, the Orthopaedic Resident Review in Reconstructive Surgery course is designed to provide orthopaedic residents with a comprehensive review of orthopaedic surgery. The 3-day course will cover aspects of orthopaedic surgery over five topic areas: Upper Extremity, Foot and Ankle, Hip and Knee, Spine Reconstruction, and Tumours. The course will include lectures based on a “Top 10 Things You Need to Know” format, which are highlighted by interactive panel discussions. The course also includes small breakout case-based learning sessions. The small group scenario sessions will yield a high faculty to participant ratio, which will create a dynamic learning environment. Sessions will be delivered by our highly regarded faculty, which has been compiled with representatives from universities across Canada. Accordingly, sections of this course will be offered in both English and French.
In addition to the topic-oriented sessions, this course offers the opportunity for orthopaedic residents to partake in a mock oral examination within an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) style format at the conclusion of the course.
