Since our department specializes in trauma work, we find a lot of people interested in the kind of trauma we receive and our techniques in the management of these. We aim to impart techniques and tricks gathered by us during our experience in this

institution.

We also perform a lot of spine, paediatric orthopaedic and joint replacement work, using newer implants and techniques, adapting them to our circumstances and at the same time developing our own innovations and techniques which we would like to share with people elsewhere.

The candidate will be assigned to a specific unit and will attend the OPD, OT, wards and emergencies with the respective unit. He will be accountable to the head of that unit.

The candidate will also participate in the academic activities of the department, namely the weekly audit, seminars and clinics.

The candidates will have to pay the institutional fees as applicable.

A certificate of completion will be presented to the candidates at the end of the duration.
