The AO’s innovative plans for the fully online AO Davos Courses 2020

Learn from the best—where ever you are in the world


AO Davos Courses

Continuing the 60-year medical education legacy of the AO Davos Courses this year—for the first time ever—the AO sets the course for the future of medical education with our flagship educational event taking place entirely online, underscoring our commitment to the health and wellbeing of course participants, faculty, staff, partners, and the Davos community that is so integral to the AO spirit.

With its innovative plans for the fully online AO Davos Courses 2020, originally conceived as a hybrid event with both on-site and online components, the AO has an opportunity to assert its reputation for excellence as the world’s leading education provider to health care professionals working in the fields of trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.

“The first-ever fully online AO Davos Courses 2020 are a unique opportunity to learn from and engage with the best, from wherever you are in the world.”

Robert McGuire, President AO Foundation

COVID-19 has limited surgeons’ and operation room personnel’s access to educational opportunities, and the online format for the AO Davos Courses 2020 provides a responsive means for our global audience and faculty to engage on issues that interest them.

While the AO looks forward to returning to face-to-face, on-site courses in the future, this year’s online solution for the AO Davos Courses answers the global medical community’s demand for continuing education while prioritizing the health and wellbeing of participants, faculty, and AO staff.

AO Davos Courses 2020 registration is open, with a slate of over 20 online courses spanning AO Trauma, AO Spine, AO CMF, AO VET, AO Recon, and the AO Program for Education and Excellence in Research (AO PEER).
