WELCOME TO THE VIRTUAL EFORT CONGRESS (VEC)

As a result of the current global situation, there is no doubt that the “new way of working” has accelerated the way to deliver “Education” differently.  Exploring, embracing and offering inventive solutions has convinced EFORT to create its 1st Virtual EFORT Congress (VEC) which will take place from 28 to 30 October 2020.

EFORT is dedicated to Orthopaedics and Traumatology Education in Europe. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic it was unfortunately not possible to welcome you to the 2020 EFORT annual congress in Vienna, now postponed to 30 June – 02 July 2021. While EFORT sees its mission in bringing together the Orthopaedic and Traumatology community it wanted to adapt and offer a new learning experience through the development of this first Virtual EFORT Congress (VEC).
