Resources for surgeons who are interested in, or are already conducting research
The AO Program for Education and Excellence in Research (AOPEER)
Designed by surgeons
for surgeons

The AO Program for Education and Excellence in Research (AOPEER) offers surgeons the ability to gain training and experience in all phases of clinical research. 

Many surgeons receive little to no training in the principles of research, and accessing grant funding is generally not part of a surgeon’s skill set. The AOPEER platform has been designed to meet this need, by providing a collection of useful resources and learning opportunities for surgeons who are interested in learning how to conduct research.

AOPEER provides guidelines, courses, eLearning modules, articles, checklists, and templates covering all aspects of clinical research.
