Welcome to our Instructional Courses
These courses are held on Tuesday morning (09:00-12:00,Â 31 August) and cover a wide spectrum of orthopaedic problems. All courses will offer lectures on the state of art within the respective topics by Swedish and international speakers. Ample opportunities for questions and discussions will be given. The course format may vary â in some courses you will be offered practical sawbone exercises, in others applied surgery will be demonstrated either on video or with live surgery via satellite link.
Through the years, these courses have been much appreciated both by junior doctors as well as by senior ones. The success of the courses naturally also depends on the active participation of all of you. Do not hesitate to register for a course before it is too late!

Trochanteric Hip Fractures â a common fracture with lots of unfortunate complications.
