Master Techniques in Foot & Ankle Surgery - Virtual Series

During this strange year of disruption and uncertainty, BOFAS needs to keep our members both updated with knowledge and feeling connected. We have adopted a series of novel approaches to online education.

Following the success of the inaugural BOFAS Journal Club last month, the Education Committee and Scientific Committee are pleased to announce the new "Master Techniques" interactive discussion series.

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

The Moderators will co-ordinate the sessions and they will be 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.
  • We will invite experts in the field to discuss day to day problems and solutions.
  • Each webinar will be one hour long.
  • The co-chairmenwill facilitate and direct questions submitted from the members.
