What we do

AOTrauma contributes to medicine, following a dedicated strategy by educating surgeons, researchers, and operating room personnel (ORP), conducting and funding clinical and translational research, and facilitating networking, dialogue, and collaboration across the AOTrauma community.

AOTrauma strategy

The AOTrauma strategy was developed by all governing boards and commissions, regions, and operational staff, and serves to ensure that AOTrauma continues to be the leader in knowledge development and transfer in musculoskeletal orthopedic trauma care.

Five goals and several associated objectives guarantee that AOTrauma delivers high-quality education, leads the way and provides support through its diverse tools and resources.

This strategy encompasses goals and projects from 2017–2019. A key message document defines its implementation and communication to all AOTrauma stakeholders.
