Stay up to date with current concepts and the latest surgical techniques for the management of technically demanding orthopaedic trauma cases.
Taking call is part of every physician’s career, and many orthopaedic surgeons will cover call regardless of their subspecialty training. Surgical Insights: Taking Orthopaedic Trauma Call provides comprehensive guidance on the relevant background science, theory, practice, decision-making skills, and surgical techniques required to provide modern orthopaedic and trauma care. Written by experts from leading institutions, this course is designed to help general orthopaedic surgeons and non-trauma–trained surgeons get through call and provides in-depth knowledge for those seeking a deeper understanding that is not just surviving the night.
