Training and education

Resources for surgeons who are interested in, or are already conducting research

The AO Program for Education and Excellence in Research (AO PEER)

Many surgeons receive little to no training in the principles of research, and accessing grant funding is generally not part of a surgeon’s skill set.

AO PEER provides guidelines, courses, eLearning modules, articles, checklists, and templates covering all aspects of clinical research.
