medacta_fellowshipDuring EFORT Annual Congress 2018, which was held in Barcelona, Spain from 30 May until 1 June 2018, Medacta International introduced the Clinical Research Fellowship Programme to the Orthopaedic and Traumatology community.

In October 2018, the EFORT Foundation Clinical Research Fellowship supported by Medacta International was launched.

One special fellow every year, so called “Clinical Research Fellow” will visit a specific selected host centre where a clinical research process is on-going. The clinical research fellow will be guided through the research process from the development of a hypothesis to data collection, manuscript writing, and presentation at national and international orthopaedic conferences.
