South East European Forum on Orthopaedics and Traumatology Dubrovnik, 24th – 26th April 2019

The concept of the Forum is based on the interactive relationship between participants and invited speakers from all over the World allowing for socialization and the fulfillment of Strokes’ motto “Let’s study together”. Our aim is to transfer knowledge within the field of orthopedics and traumatology and contribute to the harmonization of educational programs and the profession itself with EU standards.

We hope that each participant will find his/her interest, regardless of whether he/she works on instructional lectures, consultations for the complex cases shown, or attends debates on issues from virtually all fields of orthopedics and traumatology that beset us.
