Dr. Charles Blitzer, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in trauma at Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, recently taught a course to residents at the Orthopaedic Trauma Association’s (OTA) Comprehensive Fracture Course in Tampa, Florida.
According to the OTA, the course was an excellent opportunity for residents to learn from highly skilled orthopaedic trauma surgeons who traveled to Tampa from around the country to participate in the OTA’s 30th Annual Meeting.
“Being a member of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association gives me a nice opportunity to stay involved with orthopaedic teaching,” states Dr. Blitzer who served as a lab instructor. “These are very bright, committed young men and women intent on improving their knowledge and skills. Their interest and curiosity are stimulating to those of us on the faculty; they often remind us why it is we do what we do.”
The course provided residents, who traveled from around North America, intensive training with a faculty of over 144 OTA members. The collective knowledge, experience, and commitment to teaching in this group of instructors make the course one of the most sought-after by residents each year.
