From one of our lecture series on orthopaedic surgery last year, Dr Magobotha pointed out that students need more exposure to basic orthopaedic skills as the university curriculum does not provide adequate time allocations in orthopaedics. Therefore, we have decided to organise an orthopaedic workshops where the students will be taught several basic orthopaedic knowledge / skills.

The workshop was held in the 2nd floor anatomy lab, where several stations were set up, each focusing on different aspects of orthopaedics. Students were asked to divide themselves into groups, and they rotated through the stations.
