Hospital Based Seminars

The Hospital Based Seminars (HBS) are low cost educational activities developed on-site at hospitals of the region, based on the AOSpine Curriculum, and case discussions. It is aimed at fellows, residents and medical staff of these hospitals. We have started the HBS Project in 2017 and the initiative was very well received by the region and the international community.

HBS Task Force leader Luiz Gustavo dal Oglio da Rocha was positive: “the project has evolved considerably in our region. The program was developed based on the AOSpine curriculum. Now we have a standard event that can be performed in any structure, with a program constantly updated, with case discussion, and ease to replicate. Our aim is to have this interactive educational event in all chapters in our region and develop a pilot for the international community”.

In 2017 we had eight HBS with 231 participants.

Planned for 2019: 

 

In addition to addressing the pathologies of the AOSpine curriculum, for the next year we will include the HBS in Research, focusing on research education. This new theme meets the objective of enhance research projects and to increase the quality and number of scientific publications.

A task force coordinated by Marcelo Valacco (AR) and composed by Alvaro Silva (CH), Emiliano Vialle (BR), Gaston Camino (AR) and Nelson Astur (BR) is working out the content based on three different levels:

  • Planning the idea
  • Drawing the research project
  • Running the research project
