AO In-Hospital is initiated by AO Trauma International Board (AO TIB) Chairperson Michael Baumgaertner, past AO TIB Chairperson Kodi Kojima, and past AO Trauma Education Commission (AO TEC) Chairperson Wa’el Taha.
“AO In-Hospital is designed to enable AO Trauma faculty to deliver relevant and recurring learning events at their own workplaces, in order to provide value for the entire clinical team. This should improve their patient outcomes while expanding the scope of the AO's high-quality educational offerings.”
