The AOCMF Course—Management of Facial Trauma, is designed to provide the fundamental knowledge and principles for the treatment of craniomaxillofacial fractures and their complications.

It is delivered through a combination of lectures, hands-on practical exercises including the treatment of mandibular fractures with miniplates and treatment of other fractures with various methods of internal fixation as well as small group discussions. The first day addresses midface fractures, the prevention and treatment of complications in the midface fracture and defects. The second day addresses mandibular fracture treatment including diagnostic and treatment principles.

This course is intended for surgeons, practitioners, fellows, researchers, and those in surgical training who are involved in the treatment of facial trauma. It is also for fully-qualified medical specialists in maxillofacial and orthognathic surgery and related disciplines, including those that deal with musculoskeletal head and neck disorders concerning trauma, oncology, reconstruction, and congenital or acquired deformities of the craniofacial skeleton.
