Course Overview

This course includes interactive, case-oriented classroom teaching in combination with intensive practical workshops.
In the workshops, we first repeat basic traumatology on plastic bones before starting to perform surgery on a cat cadaver always together with another participant. Teachers first show, how to do the exercise on a cadaver with the help of video transmission and are afterwards available to support and instruct participants during the workshop.
After the course participants will have repeated AO principles of fracture management and will be able to do correct surgical approaches to the bones as well as have a treatment plan for common fractures. Also participants will be able to perform some common orthopedic surgeries in the cat.
