Prof Dr Boyko Gueorguiev was elected as an Honorary Member at this year's Serbian Trauma Association (STA) congress held in Nis, Serbia, from September 27-30, 2017.
Following his several keynote lectures, the nomination was approved at the General Assembly of the Association. The Diploma of Honorary Award was given to Boyko at a special ceremony by the STA President, Prof Dr Milorad Mitkovic, who is a founder of the Society and a Corresponding Member of the Serbian Academy of Science and Art.
During the award ceremony, Prof Dr Mitkovic expressed the intention of the STA, founded in 2008, for a further implementation of European achievements of trauma and emergency surgery in Serbia. The STA helps young surgeons to interact with European colleagues, as well as improving the continual development of trauma care. Prof Dr Milorad Mitkovic is a long-term colleague and friend of Prof Dr Stephan Perren, who is a founder of the AO Foundation, instrumental in establishing its success. He ran the AO Research (amongst other areas) for nearly 30 years. We are very happy to keep this special relationship going through Boyko and the STA.
