COVID-19 Update: Due to the Current Global Pandemic the Annual Orthopaedic Resident Review in Paediatrics course will be ONLINE this year on February 12, 2021.
The Orthopaedic Resident Review in Paediatrics course is designed to provide orthopaedic residents with a comprehensive review of paediatric orthopaedic trauma and reconstruction. The 1-day course will cover all aspects of paediatric trauma and reconstruction over numerous areas including: Upper Extremity Trauma and Reconstruction, Lower Extremity Trauma and Reconstruction, Spine and Pelvic Trauma and Reconstruction, and Paediatric Emergencies. The course will include lectures based on a “Top 10 Things You Need to Know” format, as well as a total of 6 hours of case-based learning sessions! The case-based learning sessions will create a dynamic learning environment with our highly regarded faculty, which has been compiled with representatives from universities across Canada.

Dr. Schemitsch's clinical interests include the management of patients with complex lower extremity fractures, hip and knee reconstruction, and computer assisted surgery. Dr. Schemitsch’s research has focused upon the care of patients with musculoskeletal injuries. His basic research interests include the systemic response to trauma, gene therapy, biomechanics, bone substitutes, and the stimulation of fracture healing. His clinical research interests include computer assisted surgery, clinical trials and outcome studies. He has received international recognition for his research efforts.
Many surgeons regard Dr. Schemitsch as one of the foremost authorities in Fracture Repair in the world. Dr. Schemitsch’s program of research in musculoskeletal trauma has led to hundreds of publications in top journals and hundreds of guest lectureships around the world.
Most regard Dr. Bhandari as the foremost authority in the translation of Orthopaedic research to clinical practice (evidence-based orthopaedics).
A University of Toronto graduate in Medicine, Dr. Bhandari completed both his Orthopaedic and Master’s of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics training at McMaster University. To broaden his clinical trauma exposure, he trained with world experts in Los Angeles, California and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dr. Bhandari’s clinical interests include the management of patients with complex lower extremity fractures and fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum.
He has received international recognition for his research efforts including a nationally recognized Canada Research Chair in MusculoskeletalTrauma — the only chair of its kind in Canada. Dr. Bhandari has also received the Edouard J. Samson Award for a Canadian Orthopaedic surgeon with the greatest impact on research in the last 5 years, the Founder’s Medal for Research, and Randomized trial Mentoring Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. Recent awards include the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Medal in Research, Kappa Delta/OREF Clinical Research Award, Top Achievements in Health Research Award (CMAJ/CIHR), the Canadian Orthopaedic Association Award of Merit and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Mentor of the Year Award (Ontario).
Over the past 5 years, Dr. Bhandari has published hundreds of peer-reviewed papers across top medical and Orthopaedic journals including New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, BMJ, CMAJ, and the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery-American.
