Each year the AO Foundation conducts its flagship educational event the Davos Courses at the Congress Center over the course of two weeks in early December. The AO Foundation is a medically guided not-for-profit organization led by international surgeons specialized in the treatment of trauma and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The AO fosters one of the most extensive networks of more than 20,000 surgeons, operating room personnel, and scientists in over 100 countries. The AO Foundation's clinical divisions AOTrauma, AOSpine, AOCMF, AOVET and initiative AORecon, offer a variety of educational courses to surgeons during the AO Davos Courses. The "AO World," in the foyer of the Congress Center, offers participant surgeons the opportunity to talk to experienced staff from the AO Institutes (AO Research Institute, AO Education Institute, and AO Clinical Investigation and Documentation) about how the AO meets the needs of surgeons in product development, publishing, and clinical research. Leading medical device companies are also invited to participate in our industry exhibition, which offers a unique environment to network with leading surgeons in the field. This year, the AO Foundation celebrates 60 years of transforming surgery and changing lives. During the Davos Courses several special events will take place to celebrate this milestone.
