CMF surgery elite mingle at Davos Courses

The world elite in craniomaxillofacial surgery had the opportunity to rub shoulders at an official AOCMF reception on the sidelines of the Davos Courses 2017, where they witnessed the launch of a new Surgery Reference module and a promotional video.

Membership in AOCMF grants a host of benefits including the chance to network, build mentorships, exchange knowledge and discuss best practices with the world's leading surgeons, including in the setting of the Davos Courses, the flagship surgical educational event.

"Today represents a very important day for AOCMF," said Daniel Buchbinder, the new Chair of the AO Technical Commission (AOTK) and AOCMF International Board Member. He praised the AOCMF community for its hard work in updating Surgery Reference with a facial nerve module, a unique addition to the global body of surgical literature.

"This is truly one of the special modules we were able to put together," he said. "There's nothing like that available anywhere else. We're offering it to all our members at no cost, so it's truly a very good benefit for being part of the AOCMF community," he added.

The module was authored by Damir Matic and John Yoo. Other notable attendees included Warren Schubert, AOCMF International Board Chair and Sabine Girod AOCMF Community Development Chair.

"It's truly a very good benefit for being part of the AOCMF community."

"This is a very special video to market the Surgery Reference," Buchbinder added.
