The goal of this AO CMF Course is to address the core concepts necessary to manage acute facial trauma.

Course description

1. Online preparations—4 weeks prior to the face-to-face event     

In these 4 weeks participants are required to complete a self-assessment and conduct online self-study, including reading material on bone biology and healing, viewing videos and touch surgery modules.

2. Face-to-face event—2 days

The face-to-face event is delivered through a combination of short lectures, small group discussions, and practical exercises. This combination enables participants to hear, discuss, and apply the concepts of facial trauma management.

3. Online follow-up

During the week after the course, participants will complete an online evaluation.
