7th SICOT Educational Day

The aim of the Educational Day is to provide a comprehensive review course for the residents and an evidence-based update for the practicing surgeons on a specific theme at each SICOT Congress. The format of the day consists of four to six short lectures in each section followed by ample time for case discussions and debates and ample breaks. The theme for the forthcoming Cape Town meeting is 'The Hip' and the day will focus on all the elements of hip surgery right from anatomy and surgical approaches to complex case discussion.
