The Online Shoulder and Elbow School - OSES

In order to create a community of surgeons interesting in shoulder and elbow, motivate young surgeons and learn for senior surgeons and their experience, the Junior Committee is organizing an Online Shoulder and Elbow School (OSES).

The OSES is based on a series of online case-discussion between young and senior surgeons regarding shoulder and elbow pathologies that young surgeons should not miss in their daily practice.

Meetings are performed the second week of each month. The connection is free and available to all those who want to join the meeting. OSES are recorded and available to watch on the website afterwards.

Each case-discussion has a structure composed of two senior surgeons and five young surgeons, with a mean duration of one hour. Senior surgeons are invited by the SECEC Junior Committee and young surgeons must apply to participate.

To apply and participate in the case discussions, you must be a SECEC Member - (apply for membership here - free membership for EU members under 32) and:

  • a resident in your last years of residency


  • a consultant in your first years with certain degree of knowledge in the field

After this application process, young surgeons will be allocated in the different OSES according to their preferences. A certificate will be sent to the participants in Online Shoulder and Elbow School.
