Self-directed Learning

Next to attending our face-to-face courses, you have the opportunity to use our vast variety of self-directed learning tools. As they are not tied to a specific date or time, you can access them wherever and whenever is most convenient to you.

Our world-renown AO Surgery Reference and AO/OTA classification belong to this array of offerings just like our lecture videos, surgical approach videos, eLearning modules, e-books and mobile apps do. Also, you will find the scheduled AOTrauma webinars and webcasts under "Online Learning", where you can register to take part in one of the scheduled events live. If you cannot attend a live event, you still have the opportunity to watch a recording of the webinar after it has taken place.

Some of our offerings are only available for AOTrauma members.

​​eLearning: AO/OTA Classification

For the AO/OTA Classification, AOTrauma has developed an award-winning serious game, which is scenario-based and playfully leads the learner to a full understanding of the AO/OTA fracture classification system. The game contains a large case library, which can be used for practicing your classification skills.
