Trauma Academy BioSkills Course Concept
LIFELIKE FRACTURE SIMULATION
Trauma.png

The newest course concept in the Whitebook for Medical Care of the Severely Injured (“Weißbuch Schwerverletztenversorgung”).

Diligent maintenance of technical, procedural and interpersonal competencies is essential for the training of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeons. The Germany Society of Trauma Surgery (DGU) recommends a series of courses that provide the framework for this maintenance, a framework which now boasts a versatile new component: Lifelike Fracture Simulation.

Inspired by pilot training in flight simulators.

AN INNOVATIVE PARADIGM IN SURGICAL EDUCATION.

The hands-on course concept combines state-of-the-art technologies and teaches the treatment of various complex fractures in an impressively realistic format. 


The course is tailored for experienced surgeons who want to deepen and broaden their practical skills and knowledge of specific fractures in close dialogue with colleagues. Immediate feedback from experienced instructors guides you step by step, ensuring that after the course you will have extensive expert knowledge in the treatment of the respective fracture or joint injury. 

We follow Key Principles to provide you with the most advanced hands-on and online
Surgical Trainings worldwide.
