Aims of the course
The BOFAS principles course was started in 2011 as a collaborative project of the Education Committee of the Society. It was designed to teach the core foot and ankle content in the FRCS (Tr. & Orth) curriculum in an informal and interactive environment.
We are delighted to have collaborated with the Indian Foot & Ankle Society to deliver the overseas course. There is an emphasis on clinical examination cases, discussion groups, and opportunities for simulating exam conditions for those close to the exam.
The original format of the course has been maintained with emphasis on clinical examination of cases leading to decision-making on treatment and small discussion groups. This will give a unique opportunity to young surgeons to improve the care of foot and ankle patients in their practice. The final day of the course will be a hands-on cadaver training part with an aim to provide the attendees with a wide exposure to different surgical techniques for foot and ankle problems.
BOFAS runs thee courses per year in the UK and plans to reach out to international surgeons for the purpose of training by way of overseas courses and this course is the first one in that direction.
