Orthopaedics is taught to fourth-year medical students in Hungarian, English and German. Specialisation and postgraduate courses are organised on a yearly basis. Every year, several colleagues are received for postgraduate training from a variety of Hungarian and foreign centres, and many of the trainees go abroad on 1-2 year fellowships. Teachers also organise common scientific meetings with other foreign orthopaedic centres. The clinical, educational and scientific work is performed with broad international cooperation and collaboration.
