Educational Program: Hand and Wrist

Hand and wrist injuries constitute a substantial part of all treated injuries—some studies say they account for 20% of patient visits to emergency departments—resulting in their high priority for trauma care education and research. In response, AOTrauma's Hand and Wrist Education Taskforce has defined a list of competencies relevant to your practice needs. The new concept of an Education Portfolio is a result of AOTrauma's transformation initiative. The Education Portfolio will continue to offer a wide range of competency-based activities and resources that support your educational needs.
