Scientific Session
41st SICOT Orthopaedic World Congress
SICOT’s annual Orthopaedic World Congress is a truly global gathering of orthopaedists from over 110 member nations and others beside. They are now highly organised scientific, clinical and social events, celebrating the diversity of the SICOT membership and bringing together surgeons of all disciplines and experience to learn from and with one another through keynote lectures, invited talks, free paper presentations and hands-on workshops. The 2021 Congress is planned to take place in Budapest from 15 to 18 September 2021.
In the summer of 2020 SICOT launched the Programme of Innovative Orthopaedic Networking, e-Learning, Education and Research (PIONEER), to meet the need for online-only and virtual education resources following the COVID-19 global pandemic. The programme includes an online video archive and regular live webinars, and plans for the future include key opinion leader podcasts, training modules and much more. After ten months, almost 30 successful sessions were organised and the feedback is excellent. The webinars are accessible for members and non-members.
