The EFORT Annual Congress

The EFORT Congress is running on an annual base. The scientific programme includes symposia (90 minute session) and instructional lectures (60 minute session) delivered by distinguished speakers from across Europe. Free papers, e-posters, workshops, industrial symposia and technical exhibits will all feature. The Plenary Sessions (between 1.5 – 2 hours) are usually taking place during the morning on Wednesday – Friday. The congress language is English.

Controversial case discussions (90 minutes) and pro and con debates invite you actively to contribute and share your knowledge with colleagues from all around Europe. Participants of the ExMEx sessions (between 2-4 hours) can gain specialised expertise and share information with different opinion leaders on a specific topic in a group limited to 100 colleagues (a separate registration is necessary).

For the scientific programme we have successively increased collaboration with our specialty society partners. These sessions are embedded into the overall programme called: Guest Sessions. Along with the scientific exhibition, our congresses cover the whole range of contemporary orthopaedics and traumatology issues in Europe. At each event we share scientific findings, experience and participants gain a greater awareness of future trends.
