Research Training & Education
Designed by surgeons for surgeons
Many surgeons receive little to no training in the principles of research, and accessing grant funding is generally not part of a surgeon’s skill set.
This is why, AO CMF together with AO Foundation and AO Innovation Translation Center (AO ITC), provides extensive research education through eLearning modules, face-to-face courses and practical clinical research fellowships.

Why should I apply?
This program was established for surgeons that want to gain training and experience in all phases of clinical research: study planning, monitoring, data analysis, and publication.
Each year AO CMF is sponsoring one full-time three months clinical research fellowship at the offices of AO Innovation Translation Center (AO ITC) in Dübendorf, Switzerland.
