About Us


The Continuum of Training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery was established by the Irish Institute for Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery in 1999, as a means to regularise Higher Surgical Training in Ireland.

The Institute oversees the Continuum in Orthopaedics on behalf of the Royal College of Surgeons which is designated by the Irish Medical Council as the training body.

THE RCSI Council delegates this responsibility to the Irish Surgical Postgraduate Training Committee, the body under which the Institute administers Orthopaedic training.

The Institute is comprised of a 30 member Council committee and a 24 member Trainers committee.
