“AO VET provided me with a solid foundation from which to build my orthopaedic surgical knowledge and skills and has supported me ever since. I have been lucky enough to meet many great colleagues through AO VET, all of whom have been ever-willing to provide guidance and advice; several of them have become warm friends. The training that I have received through AO VET on educational practices has had a big impact on my teaching style and helped me to enjoy this aspect of my professional life even more.”
