EFORT Congress Message
COVID-19 Official Statement | EFORT Annual Congress 2021
Dear EFORT Community,
The pandemic has taught us how to adapt and make our organisation agile. It is our first priority to preserve everyone’s health and deliver Education & Training in a safe environment. Hence, the EFORT Board have once more made the difficult decision not to hold the EFORT Annual Congress in its original format this year. [...]
THE EFORT CONGRESS
The EFORT Congress is running on an annual base and offers you a broad spectrum of carefully-selected opportunities to further your knowledge of our complex and varied field. Its scientific programme includes symposia (90 minute session) and instructional lectures (60 minute session) delivered by distinguished speakers from across Europe. It also includes Free papers, posters walks, courses and numerous workshops, industry symposia and technical exhibits.
The Plenary Sessions (between 1.5 – 2 hours) are usually taking place during the morning on Wednesday – Friday. The congress language is English.
Controversial Case Discussions (CCD - 90 minutes) and pro and con debates invite you actively to contribute and share your knowledge with colleagues from all around Europe. Participants of the ExMEx sessions (between 2-4 hours) can gain specialised expertise and share information with different opinion leaders on a specific topic in a group limited to 100 colleagues (a separate registration is necessary).
For the scientific programme we have successively increased collaboration with our specialty society partners. These sessions are embedded into the overall programme called: Guest Sessions. Along with the scientific exhibition, our congresses cover the whole range of contemporary orthopaedics and traumatology issues in Europe. At each event we share scientific findings, experience and participants gain a greater awareness of future trends.
