Research training and education
AO Program for Education and Excellence in Research (AOPEER)
AOPEER is a collection of resources, reference documents, and learning opportunities designed for health care professionals who want to learn or improve the skills they need to conduct clinical research.
Research education trainings
Fellowship opportunities exist for clinicians who want to advance their experience within a research setting. Offered through AO Clinical Investigation and Documentation (AOCID) and the AO Research Institute (ARI), the following fellowships are tailored to present two diverse, yet valuable, learning experiences and are open to AO Trauma affiliated individuals.
AOTrauma fellowships provides young orthopedic trauma surgeons with the opportunity to experience trauma care, delivered by AO Trauma faculty members in an AO Trauma-certified host center.
“Clinical research encompasses many aspects, from developing a study research plan and seeking for funding to conducting an investigation and finally publishing the results. Designed to meet all of these needs, the AOPEER platform provides a unique collection of useful resources, practical examples, templates and other learning resources.”
