BOA Instructional Course
The BOA Instructional Course was established to help trauma and orthopaedic (T&O) surgeons to establish strong foundations for practice and assessment. We provide the opportunity for a number of Case Based Discussions (CBDs) across a range of topics but also to network and attend lectures delivered by expert clinicians.
This 1 day programme runs two parallel streams and provides curriculum driven clinical updates and critical condition assessment opportunities aimed at T&O trainees and SAS surgeons.
Stream 1: Case Based Discussions (CBDs) on critical conditions e.g. diabetic foot; necrotising fasciitis; spinal infection and metastatic spinal compression.
Stream 2: Plenary sessions including foot and ankle; shoulder and elbow; hand and wrist; hip and knee, spine and paediatrics.

Hiro Tanaka an established T&O surgical trainer and our educational advisor, Lisa Hadfield-Law, facilitate each course.
Participants are divided into groups of 8-9 where we offer expert feedback. ISCP Workplace Based Assessments can be completed incorporating feedback from the faculty.
Previous course participants who have made the following comments:
"The CBD sessions were excellent and involvement of all participants to contribute to the discussions was useful".
"Spinal teaching was excellent overview of a lot of topics".
"All very engaging and educational - great day and I learnt a lot".
"Diabetic foot - enthusiastic speakers, relevant material, not often covered elsewhere - good for exam".
"CBD sessions - as a junior trainee it’s useful to be mixed with senior trainees to get an idea of how to answer questions more appropriate for FRCS level".
"Excellent. I have attended this course for the last 4 years and as an overseas doctor (Australia) I found the small group interactions really useful in finding out how the specialist centres manage critical conditions which I am not really exposed to in my DGH".
"All faculties are supportive and helpful".
"Overall excellent - thank you for your time".
