Youth.Academy TO

The Youth.Academy TO is an initiative of the German Association of Orthopaedic Technology (BIV-OT) for the interdisciplinary development of young professionals in prosthetics and orthotics.

YOUTH.ACADEMY TO 2023 – Retrospect

2023, the journey for a selected group of participants went to Berlin: From October 26 to 27, the "Tag der Technischen Orthopädie" (TTO) was attended, which took place within the framework of the German Congress for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery (DKOU). Over the course of two days, the junior staff had the opportunity to further their own level of knowledge in an adapted manner and to network with one another
