Master Techniques in Foot & Ankle Surgery

During COVID-19 Pandemic, BOFAS needed to keep our members both updated with knowledge and feeling connected. We adopted a series of novel approaches to online education.

Following the success of the inaugural BOFAS Journal Club, the Education Committee and Scientific Committee announced the "Master Techniques" interactive discussion series.

This is the latest innovation in BOFAS online content in which a variety of national and international speakers discuss difficult decision making and operative tips’n’tricks in various aspects of Foot & Ankle Surgery.  Hour long webinars provide a forum for experts to present real world scenarios and to describe the thought process and solutions they have developed.

The Moderators co-ordinate the sessions which are set up to allow plenty of time for discussion and questions from all who attend.

Key Highlights:

  • These sessions are pitched at BOFAS members, but interested fellows and senior trainees are welcome to join in.
  • Invited experts in the field discuss day to day problems and solutions.
  • Each webinar will be one hour long.
  • The co-chairmen facilitate and direct questions submitted from the members.
