Basic Biomechanics in Orthopaedics (BBiOrth) is a one-day course held at The Royal Society of Medicine, London. The course was established in 2011 to address the fact that there is very little formal teaching at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels on this subject, which is an integral part of the orthopaedic practice. These principles are often first encountered on the job (trauma meetings!) and can be quite difficult and time consuming to grasp.
The aim of the course is to introduce and explain core biomechanical principles in orthopaedics. The material is covered by a range of speakers, who are keen to relate the theory to surgical examples. The course is delivered over one day with a mixture of lectures and small group break out sessions. The participants are divided according to their level of training. After attending the course, the participants should feel more confident about their understanding of the loads encountered in the different parts of the musculokeletal system and how the commonly used orthopaedic implants 'work'.
We are passionate about orthopaedic biomechanics, and our goal is to popularise this somewhat neglected subject in the early medical training.
Course Fee £199
