Events will be listed on this web page as details are confirmed.
Each year the Australian Orthopaedic Association hosts a week-long Undergraduate Workshop designed to showcase orthopaedic surgery, through a combination of lectures and practical exercises, to final year medical students. It is held in a different state every year with Melbourne hosting this year's workshop from 2 - 6 December 2013. The AOA invites universities from across the country to nominate one student, who is interested in pursuing orthopaedics as a career, to attend this exciting initiative. For further information about the workshop please contact AOA Training Officer, Susie Obeid (firstname.lastname@example.org).
