The British Orthopaedic Association’s Annual Instructional Course is a highlight of the BOA’s training and education calendar, bringing together trauma and orthopaedic trainees at all stages of their postgraduate training, to prepare for their FRCS examination.

Places are extremely limited! The 2016 course proved to be very popular so register early to guarantee your place for 2017!

The focus of the 2017 Instructional Course will be spine and trauma with the opportunity to obtain clinical case based discussions (CBDs) in the following areas:

Physiology of Trauma
Complications of inflammatory spine conditions
Immediate assessment, care and referral of spine trauma

The remainder of the programme will be developed and tailored to topics most relevant to trainees.

Feedback from 2016 course delegates:


“I found all aspects very useful. The lectures were interesting and informative and the CBDs were well structured.”

“Simply discussing the cases was incredibly useful. I found the reading material before to be of particular help especially the videos.”

“Discussions were varied and lots of opportunity to obtain clarification on difficult topics from the excellent faculty.”

“Topics were relevant and pitched at the right level. Small group sessions made the teaching informal with excellent trainer:trainee ratio and allowed for plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.”

“Good lecture topics relevant for the exam. Good opportunities to get CBDs in the rarer clinical cases. Good faculty.”
