Roadmap to Research

The bridge between medical school and the clinic

The Roadmap to Research is an interactive introductory seminar/workshop on how to analyze and plan clinical research. It bridges the gap between what surgeons were taught in medical school and what they need to know to advance their career in the clinic. This course has served as the first introduction to clinical research for hundreds of surgeons around the world.

Beate Hanson, Director of AO Clinical Research and Documentation, developed and gave the first Roadmap to Research course in 2003 at the AO Davos Courses. It has become a popular permanent fixture there ever since. This course, which has been given on four different continents, is also an integrated part of university courses at medical schools in the USA and Liechtenstein.

It can be given in several different formats, from seminars lasting a couple of hours to a more complete program over the course of several days.

If you are interested in having the Roadmap course as part of your congress or as a block of further training, please contact us so we can arrange a customized package to suit your needs. See the contact box on the top right of this page.
