AO Spine Latin America webinars—what's new in 2021


28 January 2021

AOSLA webinars

AO Spine Latin America recently structured their educational framework for web-based events, introducing levels and several new formats. As always, all AO Spine educational events are linked to the AO Spine curriculum. Here, you will get to know the new structure and the main changes.

First and foremost, AO Spine event planning considers the learners' needs for a particular topic and the curricular competencies to be covered. In 2021, to develop the lifelong learning education model further, the AO Spine Latin American webinars framework will be reorganized by pathology and by level of complexity. The aim is to provide participants with a clear and structured understanding of the learning offerings.

“To strengthen and to innovate our online event offers with topmost educational consistency and structure, we developed a wide variety of principles, advanced, and masters levels options. This allows our members to stay up to date and to keep learning in the most convenient way: virtually.”

Luiz Gustavo Dal Oglio da Rocha, AO Spine Latin America Education Officer
