CID Education 2017

A long history of teaching

AO Clinical Investigation and Documentation (AOCID, part of the AO Foundation) has been at the forefront of education in clinical research for over a decade.

Beginning with the pioneering “Roadmap to Research” course which has now been taken by thousands of surgeons on four different continents, AOCID has expanded its educational
offerings to meet the needs of healthcare professionals around the world at various stages of their careers.

About our courses

Practical and result-orientated education is offered in a variety of methods with a clear focus on the theory, tools and techniques of clinical research to improve daily patient care.

In addition to scheduled events, we offer our courses all over the world on an ad hoc basis. All of our training programs are also available in German, and we are able to offer selected courses in other languages.


All of our courses are accredited by the Swiss Association of Pharmaceutical Professionals. Current accreditation runs until December 2018..

Additional accreditation for selected courses may also be made to the European Accreditation
Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
