Webinars and webcasts
Webinars and webcasts offer you the opportunity to learn from renowned experts and discuss current clinical topics wherever you are in the world. These live events allow participants to ask questions and receive answers in real-time.
A webinar is an interactive live broadcast of a lecture or presentation on a defined topic; a surgical webcast is an interactive broadcast of clinical procedures delivered live from the lab.

Hospital-based education supports participants with their learning at the point of care. The modules are short, focused educational sessions on selected topics, such as intramedullary nailing or intraoperative imaging.
The most advanced programs in this area are the clinical training modules for operating room personnel (ORP). These are 2.5- to 3.5-hour, highly-interactive educational sessions delivered by AO Trauma faculty. They support ORP with their continuing nursing education at the hospitals.
