FacultyFocus AO CMF / Issue 2023-01 TEST

Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the first 2023 edition of FacultyFocus, our newsletter featuring information curated especially for you as AO CMF faculty.

In this edition, we are pleased to share with you the latest news about the Global Oral Cancer Diploma pilot, which got underway in February 2023. AO CMF, in conjunction with the International Academy for Oral Oncology (IAOO), is conducting this interactive, self-directed online program designed to provide a standardized, evidence-based knowledge platform for multiple specialties involved in the treatment and management of oral cancer cases.

Additionally, we invite you to learn about the AO Approved Solutions website, presented by the AO Technical Commission as an easy-to-use informational tool for you as faculty. With this online tool, you are just a click away from a trove of information about AO Approved Solutions—materials and technologies that have been approved for use in AO educational events.

Moreover, you can explore a variety of education-related news from across the AO, including articles on:

  • How the AO Access Mentorship Program supports the development of nonclinical competences
  • Pre-event assessment and post-event evaluation to help to deliver best-quality education
  • The importance of transformative leadership and the wealth of free, easy-to-use self-education resources made available by AO Access
  • The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma (JOT) February 2023 supplement, which takes a deep dive into the lessons learned and the discoveries made by the AO in education delivery during the pandemic
  • 10 tips for in-hospital education

Enjoy reading this very engaging edition of FacultyFocus!

Best regards,

Stefano Fusetti
