During the practices, students will receive some interactive seminar-type topic-based teaching, in a similar manner in which residents are introduced to fractures and trauma of specific body regions. Students will be able to observe the „pathway” of a patient from the ambulance to admitting at the emergency department to the operating theater to the follow up of the patient in the outpatient clinic.

On the first day of practice, students will receive a mini presentation topic, which shall be presented to the class on the final day of the practice.

The following main topics will be addressed during the practices and asked for in the exam:

By the end of the practice, students will be expected to know how to examine a trauma patient, identify fractures on radiographs and differentiate between intra and extraarticular fractures, decide between operative vs. conservative treatment, know the ABCDE algorithm for immediate care of polytraumatized patients, apply bandages, splints and casts (including Gilchrist bandage, Desault bandage, forearm backslab cast splint, Cramer splint)

Attendance of consultations and practices or repeating of unattended practices and the written exam result is required. We cannot verify the semester, or allow the student to take the midterm if the student did not attend at least 75% of practices during the semester.

We reserve the right to change the course of practices in case the state of emergency arises due to COVID.
