The education is devided into Basic and Advanced Courses of 3 modules each
A module consists of 5 days of 2 and 3 days duration - A and B course.
The basic course is of 15 days duration. Here we emphasize the common lesions in the upper-lower extremities and the spine. Between the courses a half day repetition course is offered, lead by a OMI-trained Group Leader.
Thereafter 2 repetition courses of 2 days, followed by Basic Exam in Orthopaedic Medicine, theoretical and practical examination.
The advanced course has the same structure as the basic course. Here we pay more attention to differential diagnosis and more uncommon lesions.
The advanced course is followed up by a three-day repetition course before Advanced Exam in Orthopaedic Medicine, also theoretical and practical examination.
The entire education usually takes 3 to 4 years to complete and has the same structure and content in all countries we teach. This renders further education possible in your country of choice.
