Mark Reilly

Dear colleagues,

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

In this edition, we are pleased to share with you the latest news—and enthusiastic feedback—about AO In-Hospital, which has facilitated 66 successful educational events for surgical staff at their workplace. Designed exclusively to help AO Trauma faculty meet the recurring obligation of providing education for surgical staff, AO In-Hospital comprises a library of relevant, free, high-quality modules that are easily accessible online through the dashboard.

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.

In this edition, you can also learn about AO Milestones’ launch of its first adaptive online learning experience for orthopedic trauma residents and residency program directors in North America, as well as new resources for faculty and chairpersons of the AO Trauma Course—Pelvic and Acetabular Fracture Management.

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
  • Ten tips for hospital-based education

Enjoy reading this very engaging edition of FacultyFocus!

Best regards,

Mark Reilly

Chairperson, AO Trauma Education Commission
