BOA Bootcamp - enhanced induction for ST3/4

BOA Bootcamps prepare new trauma and orthopaedic trainees with the capabilities to excel during their training. Following outstanding feedback, the programme has been into two separate events:

  1. Human Factors
  2. Cadaveric Training



The Human Factors course will focus on developing professional capabilities and understanding of human factors over two days, and is open to all trainees who are ST3 at the time of booking or have been offered an ST3 position.

The Cadaveric Training course is only available for trainees (ST3 at the time of booking) who are not able to access this type of training through their deanery.   It will involve learning surgical approaches used during trauma surgery through case based discussion and practical skills learning.

These courses are provided as part of our membership benefits, so all participants must be BOA members at the time of booking. Click here if you wish to become a member.
