Our Seminar „Practical Orthopaedics“ has been successfully performed for medical students from Austria for more than ten years now and we’ve been exceptionally happy to be able to include international students in the last few years. A group size of only 16 participants ensures the high quality of our program. The Stolzalpe Hospital is one of the largest orthopaedic departments in Austria and is famous for hip and knee surgery as well as paediatric orthopaedics.


This one-week course includes interactive lectures, as well as hands-on-workshops. The lectures will be presented by the different teams and will cover the most important topics in orthopeadics including conservative orthopaedics, radiology, physical medicine and hip-sonography for newborns. The practical hands-on-workshops include knee arthroscopy on a model, plating, nailing, sewing and casting. Bed side teaching is performed with clinical examination of the different joints, patient’s presentation, joining the outpatient department and the OR.


Get to know the most important musculoskeletal diseases and develop an  overview of diagnostic procedures, conservative therapies and surgical procedures. Receive an insight into new developments and future perspectives in the field of orthopaedics.
