Orthopaedic World Congresses

Every year, SICOT holds a congress which attracts thousands of clinicians and researchers from all over the world. Scientific papers and lectures are presented in the traditional fields; world-class invited speakers provide contemporary thought on the latest concepts as well as on conservative and surgical treatment methods.  They provide a forum for presentation of original work and for education. 

   
Trainees' Meetings

Trainees' Meetings offer trainees a unique opportunity to present papers and to meet for instruction by leading orthopaedic surgeons. Where possible, Trainees' Meetings are held together with Orthopaedic World Congresses.
