Day of Sections and Working Groups
On “Specialty Day” the sections, working groups and study groups of the 3 hosting societies present and discuss their activities.
The Student's Day is designed to get future generations of medical doctors interested in orthopaedics and trauma surgery and to show how worthwhile the field can be. The day is organised by the Young Forum of the German Society for Orthopaedics and Trauma (DGOU), which is actively involved in promoting young talent throughout the congress. Furthermore, the Young Forum annually awards travel grants.
The Patients' Day is organised in cooperation with the Deutschen Rheuma-Liga Bundesverband. It deals with different topics of importance to rheumatism sufferers.
The Satellite Programme of the DKOU offers information of companies and professional societies.
On approximately 6,000 square meter, around 250 companies present the latest developments in the field of medical technology, orthopaedic technology, pharmaceutics and medical services.
