MFT Course group discussion Small group discussion, Lisbon, Portugal, February 2017

Officially launched at ICOMS in Hong Kong, our new learning framework comprehensively covers the management of facial trauma. It replaces the past principles, challenges, and advanced courses on trauma, and features more interaction between participants and our expert surgeons. Each course includes short, standardized lectures and carefully selected cases for small group discussions. This ensures that AOCMF quality standards are met for each participant worldwide.

2017 Success

12 courses have already run across the globe with extraordinary results. Excellent course ratings and waiting lists are proving that the new course is a real winner!
