Trainee Webinar Series
In response to demand from Orthopaedic Surgical Trainees, BOFAS is launching a series of high quality educational webinars. These will occur weekly and will cover the entire foot and ankle content of the FRCS (Tr&Orth) curriculum. Each webinar will last around an hour, starting with a 30 minute lecture followed by cased based discussions, viva examples and discussions as led by those attending. The webinars are free of charge.
Lectures will be delivered by leading foot and ankle surgeons with experience of teaching, all of whom have proven their lecturing ability for example on the highly acclaimed BOFAS principles courses.
We have plans for over 20 webinars in this series. You can register for as many or as few webinars as you choose. Simply click the link below. At the end of the series you will be sent a certificate which will state how many you have attended. The webinars will be available on the website for streaming at your convenience on a later date.
Delivery of training by webinars is a new innovation provided by BOFAS in response to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. BOFAS has rapidly created this series in response to a clear need identified by orthopaedic trainees.
We welcome feedback on all aspects of our educational provision. After each webinar you will be sent a brief survey. We take the results of such surveys very seriously and adjust our educational services in response to scores and comments. Recordings of the webinars will be posted for free access. Please note BOFAS owns the copyright to the material contained. Access to the recording is free but permission must be obtained from BOFAS if the material is to be used for any other purposes.
