  • To promote local fracture care wherever possible, together with appropriate referral
Operative Curriculum
  • To enable all T&O residents in AOA Asian countries access to an appropriate operative fracture management course during their residency
  • To further develop regional faculty with educational expertise, both in courses and during residencies
