AO Excellence

In the Education Forum a group of arthroplasty experts develop AO Recon's educational offerings based on the needs around the world. They are also responsible for the articles on clinical topics, published in our newsletter.

Curricula

An AO curriculum follows a systematic, patient-centered approach: Desired patient outcomes define necessary competencies, and these in turn define specific learning objectives.
