Presentation and objectivesThe Hip and Pelvis Study Group (GACP) of the Andalusian Society of Traumatology and Orthopedics (SATO) was formed years ago on the occasion of the Congress of the Society held in Cádiz to update and disseminate knowledge and updates in hip surgery and pelvis. The result of these meetings was the publication, a few years ago, of a hip monograph.
When doing a study of the professional dedication of SATO members, we realized that more than a hundred members were engaged, more or less regularly, in hip surgery. At the Cádiz Congress and after the GACP group meeting we decided to develop a series of innovative proposals such as the exchange of fluid information between the members of the group, the creation of a group of residents interested in pelvic and hip surgery (“Baby Hip ”), and to revise the technical updates in hip and pelvic surgery including the development of implant designs and the improvement of new, less aggressive approaches.
SATO has been organizing University Master's Degrees of the different study groups for years. Our GACP group joined this initiative with the launch of the first Master in Surgery of the Hip and Pelvis in the academic year 2017-18 with the aim of complementing the theoretical and practical training for resident in-house specialist doctors in training and physicians newcomers with greater interest in surgical pathology of the hip and pelvis.
Hip surgery has evolved significantly in recent years, mainly in the development and innovation of new materials that have been implemented in the market to facilitate the work of surgeons and improve the results obtained in the medium and long term in the citizen . The technical, biomechanical, and surgical novelties make it essential to be up-to-date in the scientific advances that occur, and this situation requires specialization in this field, as happens with other regions of the locomotor system (shoulder, spine, hand, etc.) . It is also important in our environment, to improve interest in research work on this field of research, and this is developed through the Master's Thesis.
After having completed a first Edition of the Master in the Academic Year 2017-2018, and with the teaching experience acquired and taking into account the scientific-technical advances in hip surgery, we consider that it is interesting to carry out a second Edition of the Master with an Agenda more refined and specific on certain subjects of the specialty, also improving the work methodology. The students who completed the first Edition have conveyed their satisfaction with the course and with the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired.
With the completion of this II University Master's Degree in Hip and Pelvis Pathology, we intend:Instruct the different specialists in Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology who wish to acquire a deeper and more specific knowledge of the pathology of the hip and the pelvis, through a blended teaching system.
Connect the bases in the pathology of the hip and pelvis with the latest advances and lines of research currently existing.
The practical aspect will allow the students a real and updated approach to the current vision of the pathologies of the hip and pelvis. We will have materials that allow specific training in approaches and in the latest techniques in traumatic and orthopedic pathology.
The acquisition of surgical skills through simulation techniques. This acquires special relevance in the training of arthroscopic and prosthetic surgery.ProgrammeModule I. General (10 credits)Subject 1. Anatomy and Biomechanics of the hip and pelvis
