Thorough grounding in individual spine specialties

New webinar series from AO Spine Europe and Southern Africa

11 January 2021


AO Spine Europe and Southern Africa (ESA) has announced a new webinar initiative for 2021. A series of weekly webinars presenting a “deep dive” into a single topic, with a systematic progression over three weeks from Principles to Advanced/Masters and concluding with clinical cases.

Consistency is key. Each webinar series has two dedicated presenters to ensure a uniform approach across the program, focusing on practical learning outcomes that participants can apply in their daily practice. In a short space of time, the webinars will deliver a thorough grounding in individual spine specialties. Our presenters and moderators are backed up by a team of over 15 European key opinion leaders drawn from the entire AO Spine ESA community.

We have chosen 17:00 Central European Time on Thursdays as the most convenient time to suit surgeons in the region. All webinars will be available for streaming on-demand after the initial webcast for those who cannot view them live.

These webinars are open to AO Spine members in all regions as an exclusive member benefit. If you are not yet a member, click here to join and learn about other benefits you can enjoy.
