Abstract

AIM:

The fusion of orthopaedic and trauma surgery into a combined specialty requires a new evaluation of postgraduate and undergraduate training. This study presents a structured analysis of the implementation possibilities for undergraduate training.

METHOD:

After defining 3 implementation alternatives for both clinical training and last year electives, SWOT analyses were performed. RESULTS. The SWOT analysis demonstrates for each of these 6 implementation models the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

CONCLUSION:

In order to strengthen undergraduate training in the “new” specialty all medical faculties should discuss and define their implementation concepts.
