Welcome to the AOSpine Davos Courses 2017

Design Your Personal AOSpine Davos Courses 2017!

Dear Colleagues,

As the new AOSpine Education Commission Chairperson, it is my great pleasure to welcome you at the Davos Courses 2017.

Over the past few months, we have worked hard on improving and reworking the educational format of the courses to best suit the needs of our advanced and Masters level participants. On this front, I am convinced that this year's event will provide a number of exceptional learning and development opportunities.

I am pleased to share that we have not only modified the format of the AOSpine Davos Courses, but that we are also combining theory and practice in an entirely new way. This year, participants have the opportunity to choose one from three educational courses in the morning. In the afternoon, we will again offer the very successful and highly innovative practical MISS training on RealSpine simulators. In addition, we will offer another set of pilot courses on MISS Vertebroplasty, which includes hands-on training in small groups. More information on these sessions can be found in this program.

For participants who are unable to register for the MISS courses with limitedseating, a range of seminars, lectures, and practical exercises, as well as last year's highly popular case discussion "The Good, the Bad, the Ugly—a case that taught me a lesson" are offered in the afternoon.

At the Davos Courses, our carefully trained and highly skilled international group of faculty members will not only share their extensive knowledge and experiences with you, but also make sure that you achieve the best learning experience possible for success in your daily practice.

Last but not least, the informal environment at the Davos Courses also provides the perfect setting for networking with spine experts from all over the world.

I am very excited about the Davos Courses 2017 and look forward to seeing you there in December!

Best wishes,

Bryan Ashman

Chairperson AOSpine Education Commission,
Course Director AOSpine Davos Courses 2017
