The Dubai Bone and Joint Center (DBAJ), a member of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Academic Medical Center, recently organised a one-day course focusing on the latest trends and concepts in orthopaedics and trauma.
Titled DBAJ Orthopedic Update – 2010, the continuing medical education (CME) course was held at the Deira Sheraton in Dubai and focused on hip, knee, upper limb, pediatric orthopaedics, trauma and pre and post-operative rehabilitation.
The programme that offered a profound insight into the latest medical advancements in these areas has been approved by Harvard Medical School Dubai Centre’s department of continuing medical education for 6.0 CME hours.
“Our mandate is to constantly highlight newer research and management strategies in common musculoskeletal diseases and injuries, while providing information on key orthopedic practices through such platforms,” said Dr Shah Alam Khan, consultant orthopedic surgeon at DBAJ.
“There is an essential need to keep the medical professionals updated so that they remain aware of the rapid technological advancements and research-based know-how. DBAJ remains committed to this objective and we aim to make this course an annual feature to offer wider access to new trends in medical concepts,” he added.
