The AOTrauma Community: Share your passion for trauma and orthopedics

AOTrauma is the world's largest trauma and orthopedic community delivering knowledge, experience, and evidence to change patients' lives and improve the effectiveness of trauma care.

AOTrauma recognizes the vital need for cooperation, collaboration and
teamwork in order to sustain and advance our mission. It is for this reason
that we create leadership opportunities for talented surgeons and promote
initiatives that support the next generation of surgeons and orthopedic
trauma professionals.

Our mission is to provide valuable benefits and networking opportunities for our member community and, unlike other organizations which operate only on a national scale, one of our key strengths is that we are truly international, with members all over the globe.

AOTrauma shapes all its activities around three core value statements:  

  • Excellence in trauma care
  • Empowering the next generation
  • Transparency and mutual trust within our network   

AOTrauma continually strives to meet the evolving needs of surgeons through each stage of their career. Tangible privileges, such as access to selected journals, the network directory, free e-books, AOTrauma webinars and webcasts, give great value to members.​​​​​
