Latin American Leadership Course


Theodore Miclau, MD, Professor and Vice Chairman, UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, was an integral part of a leadership course hosted in Havana, Cuba for Latin American orthopaedic surgeons.

The course was developed in collaboration with the Asociación de Cirujanos Traumatólogos de las Américas (ACTUAR), a Latin American network of orthopaedic trauma surgeons. This was the second of its kind delivered in Latin America, focusing on individual skill and effective team development. The course was accompanied by pre- and post-course surveys and will serve as the foundation for a publication in the Journal of Cuban Orthopaedics and Traumatology.

Following the course, Dr. Miclau was presented with an honorary membership to the Cuban Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (SCCOT) by their leadership.
