EPOS BAT Educational Programme

EPOS Educational Committee has set up “EPOS BAT Educational Programme”. The programme meets the demands required by the European Board of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EBOT). The syllabus should contribute to knowledge-sharing and a further understanding of Children’s Orthopaedics.The eponym BAT arises from Basic Courses, Advanced Courses and Traumatology Courses. These courses together constitute “EPOS BAT Educational Programme” and aim to facilitate a problem-solving approach in the diagnosis and management of orthopaedic conditions in children informed by relevant research evidence.

A module of two Basic Courses (I+II) in combination with one Traumatology Course covers the core curriculum in Children’s Orthopaedics. Advanced Courses are primarily designed for Children’s Orthopaedic Surgeons who manage children’s orthopaedic conditions in a highly specialized setting. Course teaching Faculties are composed of highly internationally recognized specialists in Childrens Orthopaedic from all over Europe and USA.
