The 2022 FORTE Summer School in Athens was a great success. Between July 25-29, 114 Orthopaedics and Trauma trainees from 15 different European countries met 50 internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeons from all around Europe in a very productive course, enjoying the Greek hospitality.

All topics of the European Orthopaedics and Traumatology Curriculum were covered. A basic Comprehensive Review Course (CRC) provided general topic reviews through expert lectures, covering the basic knowledge. Additionally, a more advanced Exam Preparation Course (EPC) tried to address the educational objectives of more advanced trainees; those that are preparing themselves for National or European Exams.

Most of the European Subspecialty Societies embraced this course, while prominent members of their leadership were invited to Athens as faculty. The Hip Sessions of the Summer School were lead by EHS Committee Members, inlcuding EHS President Elect Prof Eleftherios Tsiridis and EHS SciCom Members Prof Klaus-Peter Günther, Prof Theofilos Karachalios and Dr George Macheras. Congratulations to FORTE President and EHS Member Dr Panayiotis Megaloikonomos and to the FORTE Summer School Committee for the excellent organization of this course and thanks to EHS once again for patronage.
