Abstract

Summary:

Routine surgical skills training is known to advance a surgeon's technical proficiency. However, orthopaedic providers in low-income countries have limited access to skills training programs. International academic partnerships can augment locally available orthopaedic education, improving the quality of and capacity to deliver orthopaedic care in low-income countries. The objective of this study is to provide a practical guide to delivering an orthopaedic skills training course in a low-resource setting. The information provided is based on the experiences of the authors, along with specific feedback from previous course participants in Haiti.
