SMART Trauma


About This Course

The SMART Course is a modular skills based curriculum for orthopaedic surgeons from developing countries to gain practical knowledge in the management of musculoskeletal trauma. The course utilizes a combination of case-based didactics and hands-on skill sessions by both orthopaedic and plastic surgeons to teach core principles in fracture management and soft-tissue reconstruction driven by local input and feedback from annual attendees. The supplementary material in this online course provides a resource of instructional videos and content that learners can access outside of the annual course.


The IGOT Portal is meant to be supplementary learning material to concepts and skills reviewed at the SMART Course. Learners should be practicing surgeons or surgeons in training who treat traumatic injuries needing surgical management and reconstructive intervention. It is recommended that before accessing the IGOT Portal that you have attended an IGOT International SMART Course.
