BOA Instructional Course


Saturday 7th – Sunday 8th January 2017


Manchester Conference Centre


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 alongside the newly appointed BOTA Education representative to ensure that we tailor the course to issues most relevant to trainees.


Feedback from 2016 course delegates:

“Uniformly excellent and engaging faculty”

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

“Excellent topics relevant to practice and exam covered in instructional lectures. CBD’s were well organised and interactive”

“The mix of lectures and small group sessions were informative and very useful for my level. The CBD sessions provided a good variety of learning opportunity and the awarded CBD’s were appreciated”

“Excellent, fair faculty with an excellent breadth of expertise”
