UCSF Ortho SMART Trauma


About this Course

The SMART Course is a modular skills based curriculum for orthopaedic surgeons from developing countries to gain practical knowledge in the management of musculoskeletal trauma. The course utilizes a combination of case-based didactics and hands-on skill sessions by both orthopaedic and plastic surgeons to teach core principles in fracture management and soft-tissue reconstruction driven by local input and feedback from annual attendees. The supplementary material in this online course provides a resource of instructional videos and content that learners can access outside of the annual course.
