The BHS Instructional Course was conceived as a way for those in need to acquire and update their knowledge at a rapid rate and in a short space of time.
The educational requirements of trainees, fellows and practicing members are evolving constantly. At the same time, evidence-based knowledge in hip surgery is expanding at a very rapid rate.
Furthermore, all trainees need to take exams towards the end of their training to demonstrate cognitive competency and mark completion of training.
Additionally, all practicing surgeons do have to engage in the appraisal process annually and revalidate every five years to demonstrate fitness to practice.
In both these scenarios, acquiring and updating knowledge at a rapid rate and in a short span of time is crucial. The BHS Instructional Course was conceived with exactly this purpose in mind.
