The AO Education Institute supports the AO and its Clinical Divisions to further develop and to transform medical education for our communities.

The AO faculty development team develops faculty training programs for all Clinical Divisions/Units of the AO. These competency-based programs offer a broad range of learning opportunities to support AO faculty members, chairpersons, and leaders in achieving their educational goals. Based on adult learning principles, we promote excellence in teaching, facilitation of surgeon learning, and curriculum development, and provide constructive feedback to the participating faculty members. The skills and strategies developed in these programs positively impact course design and contribute to our mission to deliver high quality education—ultimately translating into clinical practice for the benefit of patients.
