Virtual TOTs

8:00AM 19th Nov - 8:00AM 18th Dec 2020 Venue : Training

VIRTUAL TRAINING ORTHOPAEDIC TRAINERS (V-TOTs)

The Training Orthopaedic Trainers (TOTs) programme aims to improve the standard of teaching for those in trauma and orthopaedic (T&O) training and practice. The underlying premise is that if T&O trainers understand how people learn and how the T&O curriculum works, by translating that understanding into action, they should improve their teaching.

Whilst face-to-face programmes have been suspended, the BOA has created the V-TOTs programme run entirely on line. The V-TOTs courses are running now and we have had significant interest from those wishing to join a future course. If you would like to book onto a future course, please email policy@boa.ac.uk and we will add you to the waiting list and contact you as soon as places are available. Those who need to meet imminent CCT requirements will be given priority, but once those needs are met, anyone is welcome to join.

Disclaimer: Please do not book unless you have been approached by the BOA. If you are interested in booking onto a V-TOTs course in the future please email policy@boa.ac.uk and we will add you onto the waiting list and contact you when courses are available for booking.

Please note: The learning materials for this event booking will be available through Microsoft Teams from November 19th onwards; this is the official start date of this event, however, there will be scheduled dates for when the live online learning sessions are to be held. 

When booking onto the course, please be aware that the live online sessions will be held on different dates (stated below) of which each participant must make themselves available for one of.

  • Participants should choose one of the follow dates to be available to partake in the session of live online learning (the content of which is the same for both). Participants should let policy@boa.ac.uk / e.khalid@boa.ac.uk as to which session you will be attending:
    • 6-9pm 3rd December
    • 6-9pm 10th December
  • Please note that, as we require equal numbers for each date, once the dates are full we can no longer accommodate and participants will need to attend the other session.

There will also be a 1 hour session on 7-8pm 16th December. This session is not mandatory but highly recommended to attend.
