Courses and events
In a new and completely online format, the AO Davos Courses 2020 continue the AO’s 60-year legacy of shaping the future of medical education. The first-ever completely online AO Davos Courses underscore the AO’s commitment to the health and safety of course participants, faculty, staff, partners, and the Davos community—and allow surgeons to take part in the event from anywhere in the world.
FACE AHEAD 2021
Two action-packed days of knowledge exchange and networking—and having a great time—are at the core of the FACE AHEAD experience. Tissue replacement and 3-D planning on day one, complications and personalized medicine on day two. Participants will have the opportunity to meet up with peers, mingle with some of the biggest names in the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) field, and strengthen their professional network.
The best part? Eighty percent of the 40 sessions will be interactive. That means that the participants themselves will have a key role in shaping this unique event.
Global Spine Congress
The Global Spine Congress (GSC) is one of the biggest gatherings for thousands of spine surgeons from all over the world. Aside from being the only international spine congress of its kind, the GSC is unique in that the scientific program covers all pathologies, whether that be deformity, degenerative, tumour or spinal cord injury.
